Tacoma Arts Live is driven by a vision of a South Sound community that honors all cultures and enjoys shared prosperity.

Each Spring, our community comes together in support of education through the arts at our annual Gala. Guests raise their paddles for the Fund-A-Need raising necessary funds to support our education programs throughout the South Sound. This year, we want to expand the reach of this campaign beyond the room. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 and kick-off the event with this collective impact gift from the community and kick-off the the Fund-A-Need portion of the evening with a community raised gift of $10,000. Please join with a gift for impact. 

We believe that creative citizens make for a more resiliant community. By investing is Tacoma Arts Live education programs, we are investing in our youth and their ability to become more engaged citizens in a fast-changing world. In our work with eudcation through the arts, our goal is more than creating a nation of actors, dancers, or musicians; rather to help build an enlightened, creative, discerning citizenry that is critical to a pluralistic democracy in a fiercly compettive, global economy.  

We teach these lessons using the arts as a conduit for learning, not solely teaching arts for art's sake, but leveraging the power of how we communicate, using different modes of connecting. Why? Because the performing arts teach by acitivating all varied styles of learning and increase creativity. 

Your donation is a key to providing the learning opportunties for these young learners.
