The Tacoma Arts Commission strongly supports justice, equity, inclusion, and access. They celebrate Tacoma’s diversity of people, places, cultures, and artistic expression. The arts are uniquely positioned to touch every person and every part of Tacoma, and we are committed to supporting the entirety of our community. The Tacoma Arts Commission is committed to investing in communities most impacted by racial, social, and economic inequity. This includes emerging and grassroots groups directly serving their communities. They are committed to addressing historic and structural inequity through our funding opportunities as they work toward justice for all.
