Arts organizations are a vital thread in the fabric of Bellingham and Whatcom County. As the Covid-19 pandemic hit in March 2020, these entities banded together for moral support and created the Whatcom Arts Project to continue connecting people to the arts online. Our arts organizations are united in their desire to uplift our community. Now the community is coming together to uplift our arts venues as they persevere through this pandemic. This collective fundraiser asks individuals to choose 5 Whatcom County arts organizations and donate $50 to each for a total donation of $250. This show of support, of unity, of love for the entire art community is aptly titled We heART commUNITY.
