Art by the people, Art for the people.
Art2 encourages people to actively participate in creative endeavors, to build strong networks between people, and engender a strong sense of community & place. The JAHC provides rental space, marketing & promotion, production assistance, and acts as a fiscal agent as needed. Beyond that, these programs are self-sufficient, and provide arts & culture programming driven by the wants & talents of the community!

Juneau Cabaret is about preservation through performance. In 2009, local singers and piano accompanists started a regular evening cabaret performance for experienced, developing, and returning singers who wanted to interpret selections from the Great American Songbook. Over ten years, the project developed to include quarterly “open call” shows, an annual holiday rush-hour concert in December, and a curated lecture concert series featuring some of the project’s very best singers interpreting works by Great American Songbook composers.
The Poetry OmniBus is a local juried poetry contest, in which selected poems will have the honor of being displayed on city buses for one year. The program nurtures our local writers, and provides inspiration, reflection, and consideration to the bus ridership. It also showcases our local talent to visitors and community members alike.
Adults or youth (ages 8 to 17) may participate. A total of 20 adult and 16 youth poems will be selected each year. The submission period for the program is from January 1, 2022 through February 28, 2022, with a celebration ceremony in April. Learn more and how to apply HERE.
