A new home for
Sylvia Center for the Arts
Sylvia Center is a new performing arts center in Bellingham, Washington. We provide affordable space for Whatcom County’s 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.
Learn more about the center in this video for our 2018 capital campaign:
With your support, our Kickstarter campaign raised over $70,000 from nearly 600 backers in spring 2018 to help us open our ground floor facilities: a 150-seat main stage venue, the Lucas Hicks Theater; a 65-seat studio theater/rehearsal space; our entry lobby, which doubles as art gallery, box office, and bar; a second gallery/hang space; and new accessible restrooms.
We still have a lot of work ahead of us — your gift will help us continue construction and programming at the new arts center: donate today to help create a new home for locally-created performing arts in Whatcom County!

SERIAL KILLERS is an annual, five-weekend tournament of serial plays, with multiple teams competing for the audience’s mercy (and cash prizes). Participating teams all perform a new episode of their five-part serial play each weekend, and the audience “votes off” teams each weekend until the Week Five finale, when a winner is crowned!
