Whatcom Arts Project
Staying Together While Apart Your Online Hub for the Arts
Mount Baker Theatre is proud to be one of the leaders inspiring the launch of Whatcom Arts Project, a community of arts nonprofits, venues, and organizations collaborating to provide you with virtual arts experiences!
Through Whatcom Arts Project, we hope to inform, entertain, educate, and support our community and each other through this stay-at-home period and beyond. Expect free performances, interactive tours, classes, narratives, and other arts experiences you can access anytime from anywhere.
Join us by following along on our unfolding journey, and by Liking, Sharing, and Commenting on the Whatcom Arts Project Facebook.
