Spaceworks Tacoma, which aims to activate empty storefronts and vacant space in downtown Tacoma, is a joint initiative of the City of Tacoma, Shunpike and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce. The initiative makes no-cost and low-cost temporary space available to artists, fledgling creative entrepreneurs, organizations and community groups, and allows a diverse range of art installations and performances, artist residencies, creative enterprises and pop-up events to occur.
