We’re glad you’re here.

The Joan is the heart of the creative west. Where arts and culture meets community, where we make art, love art and share art. Fine music, contemporary music; all kinds of drama, dance, installation, mixed media, ideas, circus and song.

It’s all part of our story at The Joan.
