DAY 3: Community Outreach

I think conversations like this are critical for really giving pathways for Bainbridge Islanders to understand how their positionality can be changed and more fully engaged with making the world a more just place.

Building An Equitable Community Together

We are honored to have the opportunity to work with a host of community panelists through our outreach programs. Together, we explore and share the unique and diverse stories of Bainbridge Island.

Our outreach programs are rooted in our Mission, Vision, and Values. Through these learning opportunities, we aim to:


  • Our History
  • Diverse Cultures
  • Bainbridge Experiences


  • Our Community
  • History Heroes
  • Connecting People


  • Untold Stories
  • Traditions
  • Multiple Perspectives

Due to Covid-10 our programs have been entirely virtual in 2021. Missed some of our programs? You can catch up on a few below!

Fletcher Bay once featured a community center hall that was a destination to gather, dance and celebrate. Small family farms in the Island Center area relied upon now hidden waterways. Join us to hear these and more stories of Bainbridge History from our panelists who will share their tales of these fascinating Island roots.

We honored February Black History Month through stories and perspectives shared by a panel of Bainbridge Island successful professional women of color. Their stories give another proud and diverse voice to our Island’s History for generations that follow.

If you’re a fan of our public programs, help support their continuation with a donation today!

Come back tomorrow for an exciting update on a new Schoolhouse exhibit planned for 2022.
