About the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council
The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council (the Council) incorporated in 1973. It is the formal arts agency for the Capital City of Juneau, Alaska and operates the Juneau Arts and Culture Center (JACC), a vibrant community center; providing a location for concerts and events, rotating gallery, and a lobby gift shop. The Council offers programming in performance, visual, literary, and arts education as well as grants, scholarships, and helpful resources for local artists.
Juneau enjoys a thriving, active, diverse, and amazing arts community. World class theater, two opera companies, two ballet companies, a community orchestra and several chamber ensembles, choirs, and an abundance of arts groups create an amazing array for such a small town. The Council serves as the umbrella organization for them all, providing support, encouragement, a place to gather and talk together about ways to build all of our programs.
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.
