For over 30 years, the Cultural Council has actively promoted cultural development in Palm Beach County and South Florida by providing services and funding to cultural organizations and artists. We provide services through two primary avenues:

  • Grants made through a competitive process to organizations of all sizes
  • Grants and awards made through a competitive process to individual artists or by nomination
