City wants thoughts on live-work spaces for artists

Help the City of Tacoma make informed decisions by taking a few minutes to respond to an anonymous survey focused on your current living and working accommodations, as well as any possible desire for new accommodations. The survey can be found at and should take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

The city is interested in gaining input from artists of all disciplines from Tacoma and beyond. Fill it out even if you are not currently looking to change your living/working situation and forward to anyone you feel may be interested.

Artist live/work developments can be catalytic to communities providing affordable housing that meet both residential and professional needs of artists. Artist live/work projects are productive creative centers that can become destinations and anchor neighborhoods.

With Tacoma’s beautiful historic building stock ripe for adaptive re-use and our thriving arts community, an artist live/work development would be an excellent addition to our arts ecosystem.
