WEAVE Presents

the $5 + 1 Community Campaign
WEAVE believes in the power of the performing arts
to dispel our inherited narrative of
racial, ethnic, and gender hierarchy.
To  repair the legacy of  systemic, institutional,
and individual injustice, 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 $5+1 Goal

In order to sustain our mission we must exponentially expand our reach. 
In our first year, we want to gather a strong foundation of 500 donors

to support social and cultural diversity through the arts.

However, the magnitude of our mission can only truly be matched by an equally ambitious goal. Our intention is to ultimately reach ALL 10,000 Bainbridge households, thus fulfilling our vision of 100% community participation.

Why Now?

In recent times, we have come face to face with divisiveness in our midst and 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.

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.

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. 

​with Your monthly $5 donation,
YOU will:

  • advance economic and social justice in your own community

  • honor artists for their gifts with a passionate audience, good sound, & fair pay

  • forge a path on the cutting edge of equity-based, community-centered fundraising

  • enjoy top talent in your own backyard

  • grow and diversify your circle of friends

  • support an all-ages venue

  • take a stand for the arts after the devastating effects of the pandemic

You're crushing it. - Max Holmberg, drummer

Enthralling live jazz, massive talent on a small island stage in a cushioned, moody, casual concert hall… talent that rivaled the best jazz I’ve seen in NYC, Paris or London. – Amy D.

Your all ages policy is wonderful! - Kate G.

That was one of the best times I've had on this island in the 9 years that I've lived here!! I'm so extremely happy to find this jewel in our community.

– Shelly K.

I would take that experience any day over a concert at a big Seattle venue.  - A.B.

Help us sustain an artist-centered, all-ages, equity-based community venue right here on Bainbridge Island.
