The Arts & Culture Coalition of Pierce County consists of 26 arts, culture and heritage organizations located in the City of Tacoma and throughout Pierce County.

The coalition was formed in 2009 to collectively spark your interest in Pierce County’s many arts and culture offerings.

Each of our organizations is dedicated to providing convenient, intimate, and richly distinct arts, culture and heritage experiences of the highest quality, right here in our community. We approach each performance, each exhibition, each film and each event through a unique Northwest lens – one colored as much by the diversity of our audiences as by the waters of Puget Sound.

Discover for yourself why Tacoma and Pierce County are known as a regional hub of arts, culture and heritage offerings that uniquely celebrate humanity.
