Whatcom County’s home for locally created performing arts

Sylvia Center for the Arts is a nonprofit, community-oriented performing arts center in Bellingham, Washington.

We provide affordable space for Whatcom County’s artists to rehearse, teach, and perform, and a central hub for arts audiences to discover and enjoy locally-created music, theater, dance, and more.

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 145-seat main stage venue, the Lucas Hicks Theater; a 50-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.

Learn more about the center in this video for our 2018 capital campaign:

The COVID-19 crisis has forced us to shut down performances and put our staff on standby — please consider making a donation or membership purchase today to help us make it through this difficult time!
