Our Mission: To provide diverse cultural enrichment and lifelong education through the Arts.
“All the arts for all the people.”
Columbia Basin Allied Arts is the premiere non-profit, 501(c) (3), arts organization in Washington’s Columbia Basin. We have provided a wide variety of nationally and internationally acclaimed arts performances and events to the region’s diverse community since June 1978. With your patronage and participation, we can continue providing all the arts for all the people for another 38 years.
During Season 39 (October 2016 – March 2017), Columbia Basin Allied Arts presents four Premiere performances, three Green Turtle performances, and a poetry reading in collaboration with Moses Lake Museum & Art Center. Our Green Turtle shows are geared towards families and young people, while our Premiere performances are for a broader audience. Our performances are targeted to and performed by culturally diverse groups. Despite rising artist fees and production costs, our tickets remain affordable in order to provide theater access to as many people as possible. Season tickets are available for our Premiere shows. Individual show tickets are available for all shows.
We’re proud of our extensive Outreach Program. Each year with the help of local sponsors, we take two to three live, Green Turtle performances to local schools. Additionally, we give away hundreds of free tickets each season.
Columbia Basin Allied Arts is one of the select few arts organizations to have received the coveted Washington Governor’s Arts Award for Artistic Excellence. Our professional standing in the national arts community has been validated by financial recognition from National Endowment for the Arts, Western States Arts Federation, Washington State Arts Commission, Western Alliance of Arts Administrators, Washington Commission for the Humanities, and Arts Network of Washington State.
A board comprised of a broad range of backgrounds and professions, all sharing a common love of the Arts, leads Columbia Basin Allied Arts.
