Arts & Culture Fund – Arts Vibrancy
Juneau’s vibrant arts scene is among our city’s clear strengths, as is our rich cultural history. The two are also often intertwined, such as in the many expressions of Northwest Coast Native art that can be found throughout Southeast. In study after study, the arts have been shown to be beneficial in many different ways, including promoting social connectedness, building bridges between diverse populations, engaging students, and stimulating personal growth and community involvement. The arts also contribute significantly to our local and regional economy.
Through our partners, the Juneau Community Foundation strives to create and maintain vibrant and accessible arts and culture opportunities in Juneau and Southeast Alaska. Individuals and businesses pool their resources to achieve greater community impact through a range of arts and culture related projects, organizations and programs. By joining other civic minded people, you help build funds to support this vital aspect of our community today and in the future.
Art Bus Excursions – Connecting Every Juneau Student to the Arts
Art Bus Excursions are field trips to local arts experiences for our youth. Any Given Child Juneau currently provides annual Arts Bus Excursions for all 2nd, 5th, and 8th graders, with more in development. Art Bus Excursions are just one of the ways that Any Given Child Juneau works to ensure that all Juneau students have access to the rich arts and cultural opportunities available in Juneau.
