Tacoma Arts Plan

3 Square Blocks was asked to support the City in developing a 5-year strategic plan for the arts. The planning process began with a series of community conversations that included a diverse group of stakeholders and interested parties, including artists and representatives from creative industries, education, non-profit arts and cultural organizations, real estate and tourism industries, and others. The resulting plan, Artfull Tacoma, builds on the city’s vision and values for a creative, cohesive community and flourishing arts and cultural sector. Topics addressed in the plan include the context and purpose for the plan, how and why arts and culture are an integral part of Tacoma’s character, and the specific strategies and initiatives needed to achieve the City’s vision for the arts.
