The Juneau Arts and Humanities Council (the Council), incorporated in 1973, is the official arts and humanities agency in the City and Borough of Juneau, Alaska (CBJ). The Council operates the Juneau Arts and Culture Center (JACC) and Centennial Hall facilities under agreements with CBJ to foster a vibrant arts and cultural environment and enhance the local economy.
Our mission is to cultivate vibrant arts and cultural opportunities in our community and foster a strong, prosperous, and inclusive environment where creativity and innovation thrive.
The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council resides on the unceded territories of the Áak’w Ḵwáan on Lingít Aaní, colonially known as Juneau, Alaska. We acknowledge that the Lingít Peoples have been stewards of this land on which we work since time immemorial and are grateful for that stewardship and incredible care.
As an arts and humanities organization, we commit to meaningful collaboration through listening, learning, and holding space with Indigenous communities. We recognize the series of unjust actions that attempted to remove these communities from their land, which includes forced relocations and burning of their villages. We aspire to work toward healing and liberation, recognizing our paths are intertwined in the complex histories of colonization in Alaska.
To foster a strong, healthy, and purposeful arts community, we commit to celebrating diverse expression, listening to lessons from the past, and creating access and opportunities which carry us into the future.
