As the nexus of all things cultural on Bainbridge Island, Arts & Humanities Bainbridge supports aspiring and professional artists, students, educators and cultural organizations, including more than 20 local nonprofit groups.


Art transforms lives. AHB believes exploration through the arts and humanities creates knowledge, understanding and compassion in our world. Nurturing our local artists reveals and elevates creative potential. We provide opportunities for artists to prosper, our youth to learn through art, and the community to engage in collaborative events. The arts and humanities enhance our quality of life and create a vibrant, attractive place to live, work and visit.


AHB is the hub that helps the arts prosper and the humanities expand horizons for everyone. In our island community, the arts and humanities are integrated into all our activities, architecture, commerce, education and livelihood. At AHB we:

  • Promote and steward art in our shared public spaces
  • Place teaching artists in our local public school classrooms
  • Showcase the art of gardening through Bainbridge In Bloom
  • Host the popular Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival
  • Publish and arts magazine and online Cultural Calendar
  • Present annual awards to rising young artists and longtime island contributors

The arts and humanities cultivate a high quality of life, provide significant economic impact, and create a vibrant, attractive place to live, work and visit.
