Thanks to everyone who came out last Saturday for High Five!, Spaceworks’ fifth anniversary community celebration!
Artists, creative entrepreneurs and community members like you have made Spaceworks possible over the last five years—and we are truly grateful! Thank you, too, to everyone who pitched in to make High Five! possible: Spaceworks’ alums, volunteers, steering committee members and attendees! High five to you!
The following is a series of photographs of the event from Kris Crews of Crews Creative.
If you attended and took photos, we’d love to see them! Tag Spaceworks on Facebook and Instagram or send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We’re less than a week away from High Five, our Sept. 12 community celebration on Hilltop! Just in case you need more reasons to attend, here are details about the GREAT art and film highlights!
If you haven’t already had a chance to RSVP for the event or sign up to volunteer, now’s the time!
During High Five!, you’ll find special art displays and performances in the businesses across from People’s Park and an outdoor movie theater in the backyard behind SPUN. (Shown here is the backyard party during last year’s Quadruple Grand Opening.)
Spaceworks is turning five years old, and we’re throwing a community celebration on Hilltop!

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:
