Help us celebrate Artist Trust’s 30th anniversary by joining us for Artist Trust on Tour!  20 multidisciplinary artists are coming to 5 creative cities around Washington in a cultural exchange across disciplines and regions. Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Bellingham and Port Townsend will each host 4 artists at beloved local art institutions to connect people from different disciplines and regions, celebrate the wealth of arts that exist throughout the state, and create community.

The cities chosen are the top 5 most creative cities in Washington State according to the Creative Vitality Index, and each have a wealth of local artists Artist Trust is proud to support. All events are free with RSVP, and attendees are also invited to begin the night at a happy hour preceding each event to meet Artist Trust staff, supporters and stakeholders.
