Arts & Humanities Bainbridge (AHB) is the cultural hub on Bainbridge Island. AHB bridges the arts and business communities by administering the Bainbridge Creative District (BCD), and promotes Bainbridge’s vibrant arts and culture through our online media platform, Currents. The BCD and Currents highlight the island as a cultural destination, attract visitors, and deepen appreciation for our cultural offerings and heritage. The arts and humanities enhance our quality of life and create a vibrant, attractive place to live, work, and visit. We provide opportunities for artists to prosper, our youth to learn through art, our community to enjoy art in public spaces, and engage in collaborative events. We convene a Poet Laureate, Directors’ Forum and Cultural Reps of more than twenty local non-profit cultural organizations, to nurture connections, collaboration and active communication. We also provide fiscal sponsorship to fledgling nonprofit organizations and grants to individual artists.
