Bellingham Metal Arts Guild
The Bellingham Metal Arts Guild (BMAG) exists as a non-profit, community based membership organization for people with varied skill levels and interests in the Metal Arts. It provides a forum for the appreciation of and involvement in the diverse field of Metal Arts.
Bellingham Sings offers vocal training workshops and classes in area of classical, folk, and jazz through participation in choral ensembles.
Francie sculpts with chicken wire to create figures that suggest dynamic movement: dancers, acrobats or martial artists. Lightweight, transparent and mostly life size, her pieces often suspend from rope ladders or other trapeze-like contraptions.
Little Bird Theater
Led by Carolyn McCarthy, Little Bird Theater brings life to vacant spaces with pop-up productions by local playwrights. They build the set, rehearse and perform the show within vacant buildings in Downtown Bellingham— and then move on.
A poet with ten years of non-profit experience, Matthew leads creative writing workshops for school children in Whatcom County and facilitates a writing circle for those with chronic medical conditions.
Procession of the Species
The Procession program facilitates seven weeks of art, music, and dance workshops for wildlife protection. On Procession day, residents don their creative expressions and proceed through the streets of Olympia.
A low-key music festival with a line-up of mainly local bands, StringBand Jamboree now has a campground full of tents, guitars, coolers, and banjos surrounding two stages, creating three nights and two days of pickin', singin' and stompin'.
Whatcom Artist Studio Tour
The Studio Tour offers visitors insight into the creative process, work-life and work-environment of Whatcom County-area artists and provides an opportunity for people to purchase original works directly from their makers.
