Calling all Tacomans who participate in making Tacoma a rich, diverse, and innovative community. We want to talk!

Let’s have a conversation about how to shape the future together. Let’s talk about nurturing an authentic and vibrant community. Let’s hear from the diverse voices and talents throughout our city.

The passage of Tacoma Creates has earned us an opportunity to impact our city through arts, heritage, and culture. What will that look like? How will we ensure access? How will we measure success and be accountable to you, our citizens?

Help us learn more about who you are and your aspirations for Tacoma and your neighborhood. We want to understand your neighborhood needs and desires. And we depend on your unique insights into how we can continue to advance Tacoma. The contributions of every sector, neighborhood, age, ethnicity, and ability are necessary for our success.

When: Wednesday, January 23, 2019, 6 – 8 pm
Where: Tacoma Arts Live, 901 Broadway

Tacoma Way in Tacoma. This free public event will include facilitated break-out sessions and discussions focused on “Tacoma Creates” – an initiative to expand arts, heritage, science and cultural experiences throughout Tacoma, reduce barriers to access, and increase offerings for youth after school and in the summer. The event will also include an overview from the Jan. 24 Creative Community Conversations event.

“Tacoma Creates’ has the potential to be a transformative, powerful tool for community enrichment and equity throughout Tacoma, but we need to hear from you about the role you or your organization could play in this process. What do you need to make Tacoma a more dynamic place to live and thrive? Help us build on the momentum from our first meeting by contributing your collective vision and energy to this event.”
– Tacoma Arts Commission Chair Mike Sweney

Community input and insights from this event will help inform the development of the “Tacoma Creates” initiative. This event is part of a continued effort to nurture an authentic and vibrant arts community reflective of the voices and talents throughout Tacoma.
