WEAVE believes in the power of the performing arts to dispel our inherited narrative of racial, ethnic, and gender hierarchy.

We center the voices of Women, Indigenous, Immigrant, Queer, Black, and Brown artists on our stages, and we invite audiences to acknowledge and celebrate the myriad roots of American culture.

our goal:

Year One: 1000 donors
Sustain our mission to support social and cultural diversity through the arts

Beyond: 10,000 Bainbridge households
To reach 100% community participation on Bainbridge Island

help us reach our goal

be a part of the solution:

why now?

Though we are committed to the intimacy of the WEAVE experience, selling out our small venue does not cover our costs and does not guarantee our future.

In recent times we have experienced the need for community during crisis. We understand the importance of creating spaces that are accessible and welcoming to all.

WEAVE believes...

that an artist-centered, equity-based, all-ages, community venue is both the common ground we seek and the perfect space to gather, listen, and celebrate.

WEAVE is crucial...

to building a compassionate and equitable society that understands the power of joy as a path to healing, theater as a path to reflection, and music as medicine.

WEAVE has earned...

a stellar reputation for attracting phenomenal talent and our sold-out shows testify to our relevance in this community.

Our Model Must Be Different

Traditional methods of fundraising perpetuate inequity. Season tickets, membership tiers, VIP status, and donation perks are all designed to reward only those with the most capital.

With WEAVE’s cutting edge $5+1 Campaign everyone can be a donor, everyone can make an impact, and everyone can enjoy the benefits.
