Spaceworks is turning five years old, and we’re throwing a community celebration on Hilltop!
September 12, 2015, 4-11pm
People’s Park & 900 Block MLK
Since its founding in 2010, Spaceworks has been busy transforming empty storefronts and vacant space in Tacoma—activating 43 underused properties, assisting 73 creative businesses, and exhibiting 106 large-scale art installations.
“The artists and creative businesses that participate in Spaceworks often tell us that what they’ve done wouldn’t be possible without us,” says Heather Joy, Spaceworks Manager. “But we know that without their incredible talent and commitment, plus the support of our community, Spaceworks itself wouldn’t be possible. This party is a chance for us all to celebrate the creativity that makes Tacoma great.”
Here’s how the party will play out:
