The Tacoma Arts Commission and the Arts & Culture Coalition of Pierce County will host a Creative Community Conversation on Wednesday, May 30, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Asia Pacific Cultural Center (4851 S. 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,” said Tacoma Arts Commission Chair Mike Sweney. “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.”
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.
This free public event is hosted by Asia Pacific Cultural Center. Supervised children are welcome and light refreshments will be served. More information can be found on the event’s Facebook page.
