How we do it

We cultivate creative communities in every way we can, because we know that strong communities like ours are built on having rich opportunities for artists, entrepreneurs, and everyone who calls Tacoma home.


INCUBATOR cultivates innovative, creative businesses through training, workshops, one-to-one coaching,and peer-to-peer support. 


ARTSCAPES commissions artists to create temporary murals, installations, and exhibits that bring cultural vibrancy, and economic strength to Tacoma. While these projects may not be permanent, their effects are lasting.


COWORKING provides affordable and private studio or office spaces for artists and entrepreneurs to launch, pivot, and grow.

Special Projects

SPECIAL PROJECTS is a catch-all category that allows for experimentation, innovation, and responsiveness to changing needs.
