Center For The Arts Teams With Local Businesses

April, 8 2022

Trusty Brewing Co.

Friends and Artists,

The Center For The Arts is excited to announce our support of local artists and businesses in the community, and will be presenting a unique performance experience during each Vancouver Downtown Association First Friday Artwalk.

We have found a great partnership with our close neighbor, Trusty Brewing Co., to provide a venue for live entertainment for these events which occur every first riday of the month from 5 - 8 PM. Entertainment provided at these events is sponsored by the Center For The Arts and is all ages, family friendly, and free.

In addition to our involvement with these monthly events, the Center For The Arts is calling on you for support! The Center For The Arts launched a petition at the start of April in order to present our local elected officials with proof of community support for our plan to provide Vancouver with a world class performing arts center. Vancouver is currently the fourth largest city in Washington State, but lacks a facility established to culturally enrich the citizens of Southwest Washington. Local performing arts organizations suffer from an absence of a venue for presenting their work, and currently must rely on found spaces not suited for the media they create.

Please add your name to our petition here, or by signing a physical copy at events sponsored by the Center For The Arts. A printable version of the petition is available here if you would like to help collect signatures. Thank you for your support.
