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 Council exists and undergoes operations on the unceded territories of the Áakʼw Ḵwáan on Lingít Aaní, also known as Juneau. The Lingít Peoples have been stewards of this land since time immemorial, and all work done by the JAHC will be done in close partnership with Indigenous communities.
