The Tacoma Arts Commission is seeking submissions of arts activities happening during our 16th annual Tacoma Arts Month this October. We are looking for a variety of activities spanning all categories of art and culture including but not limited to music, visual art, literary art, dance, theater, and film.


If you will be hosting an exhibition, performance, class, workshop, reception, lecture, tour, artists’ market, celebration, meeting, presentation, or any other programming, let us know. We will list your arts event in an interactive and searchable online calendar of events on the Tacoma Arts Month website. There is no cost to you. We will be promoting the many events going on throughout the month through newspaper and magazine advertisements and articles, electronic newsletters, television ads, radio ads, and through a variety of social media outlets.

To Qualify

Your arts activity must be located within the City of Tacoma limits and occur during the month of October. 

Deadline

The deadline for the first round of submissions is August 7, 2017. We will accept activities on a rolling basis after that but submitting your information by August 7th will ensure that your activity is included in the first round of information that will go out.
