While we are in transition and searching for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners.

The AltLib Popup Series will present roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

POOR MAGAZINE, a collective of Poor, Homeless, Indigenous, Black and Brown writers and activists, will be in Bellingham to share an innovative model to solving homelessness called Homefulness. Members of POOR Magazine are touring to share their innovative “Homefulness Handbook,” accompanied by a series of writing/poetry workshops in encampments, community centers, schools and jails with other homeless and formerly homeless communities. Leading a tour on stolen land and hoarded resources, they will be sharing the template of Homefulness via storytelling and spoken word performance with fellow houseless and housed residents of so-called Bellingham, WA!
