Online survey: There’s still time to weigh in on creative space use in Tacoma

If you have opinions about how space could be used to support the art community and revitalize neighborhoods in Tacoma, there’s still time to have your say in an online survey being conducted by the City of Tacoma.

Launched in partnership with the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation and Artspace, a nonprofit that has developed more than 200 artist live/work spaces and cultural facilities around the nation, the survey is designed to learn how Tacomans think space can be used to support creative work.

“Space for creative activity is an important ingredient for flourishing neighborhoods and cities,” said Tacoma arts administrator Amy McBride in a news release. “The arts are key to Tacoma’s innovative and authentic nature. This survey will ensure that we include the voices and needs of the people who bring talent and innovation to our community as we move into the next phases of growth and development.”

The survey is available at through Feb. 9. Survey results will be shared with local developers and creative space providers like Spaceworks to “help them make decisions that best benefit creative use within existing and future developments,” the release said.
