As part of CJAC’s development, the Outreach program connects all programs together and coordinates Concerts, Library, and Education to create community events and educational experiences. CJAC founded the Social Justice Seminars with a goal to give a platform to marginalized voices as we educate and connect our audiences. This year’s events have focused on BIPOC, First Nations, and LGBTQIA artists and speakers.

The Irish Outreach Coalition is the combined forces of the Celtic Junction Arts Center, and resident companies The Center for Irish Music, O'Shea Irish Dance, Irish Fair of Minnesota, and the Irish Music and Dance Association who together, can create great performances, experiences, and educational opportunities for greater Minnesota.
