Welcome to Centrum’s
42nd Summer Season!
In partnership with Fort Worden State Park, Centrum
serves as a gathering place for creative artists and learners
of all ages seeking extraordinary cultural enrichment.
OUR MISSION is to foster creative experiences that change lives. From
exploring the roots of the blues or jazz, to the traditions of American fiddle
music or our award-winning writers’ workshops—Centrum’s summer
festivals transform the majestic, inspired setting of Fort Worden State Park
into a unique arts destination.
JOIN US and discover a full array of mainstage performances, nightclub
events, vital literary readings, lectures, dances and more.
OUR PROGRAMS welcome participants
from across the globe. Last year alone we
served individuals from 17 countries, 46
out of 50 states, and 77% of the counties
in Washington. 27% of those we serve are
age 18 or younger and our participants were
aged 4 to 97!
We present our programs with support from the Washington State Arts
Commission, State Parks Commission, the State Superintendent of
Public Instruction, National Endowment for the Arts and the Fort Worden
Public Development Authority. We thank the many donors and generous
sponsors who support Centrum and our unique role in our Puget Sound
community, and I hope you will too!
Please join us for cultural experiences you simply cannot find anywhere
else on earth. See you this summer at Centrum!

Singing is compelling—a natural
human effort to communicate.
Singing maintains culture, and
it makes you feel good.
Voice Works’ unique combination
of world-class artists and
passionate singers creates a rich
community that welcomes styles,
songs and stories in a wide range
of vocal traditions.
Centrum’s Honky Tonk Polka
Dot Dance is a longstanding and
beloved tradition as well as our
intimate faculty performance in
the Wheeler Theater.
Come and be reminded, time and
time again, of what a beautiful gift
we give by singing.
