Mission Statement

Our mission is to curate vibrant & welcoming spaces where people of all ages and incomes can grow in their artistic & social development through arts & cultural experiences. Abbey Arts focuses on music, dance, visual, literary and culinary arts in formats including multi-arts performances, group classes & workshops, individual lessons, new exhibits, community gatherings, and artistic life celebrations.


We are a nonprofit arts organization presenting and curating creative events at unusual spaces around Seattle and at our home venue, Fremont Abbey Arts Center. We create experiences where people can learn & develop through education & performance in many different art mediums. Striving to be acommunity driven, volunteer powered organization in North Seattle, the Abbey is a comfortable & welcoming space where a wide variety of people from different income levels, skills, ethnicities & backgrounds interact. Both art students & the general public experience high quality performances by artists from Seattle and around the world. Abbey Arts programs are non-religious.

Built in 1914 the Fremont Abbey is a beautiful old brick church building (originally St Paul’s Lutheran) that went from being vacant in the late 90s, to being a temporary shelter, and then undergoing major renovations in late 2007. Major work culminated March 2008 with a Grand Re-opening party and ongoing improvements do continue each year. Abbey Arts Director, Nathan Marion ( www.LonelyBuildings.com), managed the renovation & "greening of the Abbey" project including final designs & interiors.
