who we are

Alaska Arts Confluence is a 501(c)3 tax exempt nonprofit dedicated to promoting participation in the arts by providing art education and cultural enrichment opportunities for artists, residents and visitors of the Chilkat Valley. 



Drawing upon the resources of the area’s Native and contemporary  visual artists, the strength of the written and oral traditions, and the influence of music and the performing arts in rural Alaskan community life,

To achieve these ends we offer workshops, seminars, events and related activities that allow for a wide range of community enrichment, visitor involvement and cultural exchange.
