We  are  the  Arts  &  Humanities  Council

We are a hub – the center of a huge wheel nurturing connections and collaboration among a multitude of Bainbridge artists and organizations, while shining a bright light on their activities.

As a central force behind the Bainbridge Island Arts in Education Consortium, we believe integration of the arts into public education helps students practice creativity, innovation, problem solving, and collaboration.

Artists of all ages and abilities also need encouragement, inspiration, a venue for sharing and showing, and financial support. We provide these through programs such as the Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival, Poetry Corners, the Amy Award for Emerging Artists, the Island Treasures Award, Bainbridge in Bloom, and Currents magazine.

It is contributions from individuals like you that make our creative programs and support services possible. Please include the arts among your year-end donations. Give back to our creative community by making a tax-deductible gift to the Arts & Humanities Council by December 31, 2014.

Thank you and have a wonderful holiday season!

Sincerely,

The Arts & Humanities Council Board and Staff
