A new home for
Whatcom County’s
performing arts

Sylvia Center for the Arts

Whatcom County is home to a thriving ecosystem of small performing arts organizations, but affordable space to work has been in short supply for decades.

With your support, SYLVIA CENTER FOR THE ARTS will create a new home for over a dozen small arts groups by renovating a historic industrial building in downtown Bellingham’s Arts District into a new performing arts center.

Sylvia Center will provide affordable space for artists to rehearse, teach and perform, while also creating a central hub for arts audiences to discover and enjoy locally-created music, theater, and dance.
