AMOCAT Arts Awards
The AMOCAT Arts Awards recognize the people and organizations that positively impact the community with their passion, innovation, and commitment to the arts.
New for 2021! Instead of selecting only three award winners, this year’s AMOCAT Arts Awards, Wonder & Care edition, honor our collective community, which has stepped up, in big and small ways, over the past two years to buoy spirits and bring us together in new ways.
We acknowledge how difficult the past two years have been for everyone and we look to you, our community, to tell us who and what has made a difference in our community through the arts.
Who inspired you with their creativity? Who kept going through it all? Where did creative resilience show up in 2020 and 2021? Where did wonder and care show up in your neighborhood?
No creative contribution is too small. Think next-door, think down the street, think Tacoma! Some examples to consider: folx who made sidewalk chalk art, folx who sewed masks, artists who painted murals, tiny art galleries, displays in windows and yards, art in schools, pop-up markets, virtual play readings, new collaborations between artists and community members, and more.
Honor your community and share!
To submit your honoree, provide a name, short description, and photo or video and then share it with us anytime October 1 – 31 through one of these methods:
