Welcome to United Arts Alliance!
What is UAA?
Originally started in 1996 as a way to create a performing arts space in Janesville, , UAA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is “to foster an improved awareness and appreciation of the arts”. To do this, every year UAA produces several events, which recognize arts and artists in Rock County, including Arts Hall of Fame and ArtsFest. Starting in 2011, UAA launched Janesville Area Creativity (JAC) awards, which present awards for creativity of all sorts: from outstanding theater production, to culinary artist and hair designer. Money raised from JAC awards support our scholarship fund. Every year, UAA gives out scholarships to Rock County residents looking to continue their education in the arts. Thanks to your support of JAC awards, we have been able to quadruple the amount of each scholarship in recent years!
