A new home for
Whatcom County’s
performing arts

SYLVIA CENTER FOR THE ARTS

Sylvia Center provides 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.

Learn more about our project in this video:

With your support, we have just concluded a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $70,000 from nearly 600 backers to help us open our ground floor facilities.

Our main stage venue, the 160-seat Lucas Hicks Theater, will open for its first show—iDiOM Theater’s 48-Hour Theater Festival #48—on May 11th, 2018!

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!
