AMOCAT Arts Awards
The AMOCAT Arts Awards recognize people and organizations who positively impact the community with their passion, innovation, and commitment to the arts.
Instead of selecting only three award winners, the 2021 AMOCAT Arts Awards honor our collective community for the work we have done, in big and small ways, to buoy spirits and bring us together these past two years.
We acknowledge how difficult the past two years have been 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 you going through it all? 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! Consider the folx who made sidewalk chalk art, sewed masks, painted murals, set up displays in windows and yards, provided virtual arts experiences, and more.
Honor your community and share!
To submit your honoree, provide a name, short description, and photo or video, if possible, and share it with us anytime October 1 – 31 through one of these methods:
