About ECA

Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) opened its doors to the public in 2006. ECA, a non-profit organization hired by the City of Edmonds Public Facilities District, manages the facility.  ECA presents an array of outstanding performing artists from around the world, provides space, production management, and technical expertise for a variety of community partners and rental clients, and serves more than 75,000 patrons who enjoy the facility annually.

Refreshing ECA's 5 Year Strategic Plan

In April 2013, Edmonds Center for the Arts adopted a 5 Year Strategic Business Plan. The key outcomes were:


A vibrant Community in which the performing arts are woven into our daily lives and valued for their power to entertain, educate, and inspire.


To celebrate the performing arts, strengthen and inspire our community and steward the development and creative use of the ECA campus.


  • Creativity
  • Quality
  • Partnership
  • Service
  • Diversity
  • Stewardship
  • Transparency
  • Accountability

Additionally, 5 key focal points were determined:

  • Arts programming and outreach
  • Funding and finances
  • Facility maintenance and capital improvements
  • Facility redevelopment planning
  • Governance and organizational capacity

We are beginning the process of refreshing our 5 year plan and will be inviting the community, our patrons and community stakeholders, to provide input via focus groups and surveys. If you would like to be involved or learn more, please click here and simply email Executive Director, Joe McIalwain with subject line '5 Year Plan'. You will be contacted with more details. Your input will be important to our process!
