About Us

Spaceworks Tacoma launched in 2010 as a joint initiative of the City of Tacoma and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce. We celebrate Tacoma culture by providing opportunities to artists and entrepreneurs in three main ways:

  • ARTSCAPES temporarily places 2D, 3D, mural, or multi-media art installations in storefront windows, outdoor spaces, and an outdoor video gallery.
  • CREATIVE ENTERPRISE provides relevant and meaningful small business training and peer-to-peer support to the participants to systematically grow Tacoma’s creative class and generate destination quality activity that will engage and transform our community.
  • SPECIAL PROJECTS provides short-term space (one day up to six months) to individuals or groups who want to pursue or present art of any discipline, a creative special project, or a pop-up store/event.

Our Mission

Spaceworks makes Tacoma culturally vibrant and economically strong through training and support for artists and creative entrepreneurs.

We do this by:

  • Facilitating training and professional development that is geared to the creative entrepreneurs.
  • Presenting community events that highlight our participants and encourage community interaction.
  • Providing temporary space and visibility to creative entrepreneurs, organizations, community groups and artists.
