Art and Cultural Organization Registration


The Ketchikan Gateway Borough has proclaimed 2011 “The Year of the Artist”. The Borough Assembly recognizes that the arts enhance every aspect of living in this island community — improving the economy, enriching civic life, and driving tourism. A year long celebration kicked off the week of January 17 when the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly proclaimed 2011 as the Year of the Artist in Ketchikan.

Appreciating the value of Ketchikan’s rich art and cultural resources, the Borough Assembly has allocated a portion of the commercial passenger vessel levy paid by the cruise industry to support and promote Ketchikan artists, arts and cultural organizations, facilities, and public art.

The development of an online Ketchikan Artist Registry and a website dedicated to showcasing Ketchikan artists, arts organizations, cultural facilities, and public art is one of the projects funded this year.

What is the Art and Cultural Organization section?

This section of is a place for Ketchikan art and cultural organizations to create and update an organizational profile page.  The site provides a platform to promote your organization’s programs and services to Ketchikan area residents, visitors, and art aficionados worldwide. Organizations may upload images, stream audio and/or video of performances, festivals, readings, or special events.

Who should be in the Art and Cultural Organization section?

Ketchikan is fortunate to have a wide variety of outstanding art and cultural organizations.  If you represent a Ketchikan group that celebrates the performing arts, visual art, crafts, literature, and Native culture through arts education, workshops and classes, exhibitions, performances, festivals, readings and special events register today.
