Thanks to generous support from JPMorgan Chase, the City of Tacoma and the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation are bringing Artspace (a national non-profit artist housing developer) to town to conduct a feasibility study for the development of artist live/work housing in Tacoma. During their time in Tacoma, they will tour potential properties and meet with stakeholders including artists, the business sector, potential funders, and civic leaders.
We need the input of artists, arts organizations, arts businesses, funders, etc to help inform this important discussion. You don’t need to be looking to live in a live/work development in order to participate in this conversation.
We invite you to attend this free Public Meeting about artist live/work space:
Date: Thursday, May 9
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Tacoma Municipal Building North, 738 St. Helens, room 16
No RSVP necessary
Artist live/work developments can be catalytic to communities providing affordable housing that meet both residential and professional needs of artists. Artist live/work projects are productive creative centers that can become destinations and anchor neighborhoods.
With Tacoma’s beautiful historic building stock ripe for adaptive re-use and our thriving arts community, an artist live/work development would be an excellent addition to our arts ecosystem.
Feel free to spread the word about this public meeting to people who may be interested.
We hope to see you there!
