Arts & Culture

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, and the Arts & Culture Field of Interest Fund, the Juneau Community Foundation strives to create and maintain vibrant and accessible arts and culture opportunities in Juneau and Southeast Alaska. Since 2005, we invested close to $700,000 in 40 arts and culture organizations and programs:
