A growing community of musicians, artists, vendors and supporters of big-hearted projects that rock, we are fostering care for youth w/ no shelter through music and art, in concert with local community members, to encourage critical support for our city's most vulnerable people - our youth.
Working with media partnerships in radio, online and multimedia platforms, we are creating a network of like-minded partners dedicated to promoting solutions for the youth w/ no shelter, in order to foster and gain support in meaningful, material ways.
Born of music in 2012, the Stars 4 Peace are well known and supported throughout Tacoma's neighborhood communities. This coming year we combine the Stars 4 Peace with Music & Heart for youth w/ no shelter.
Your support enables us to create an ongoing cycle of awareness addressing youth homelessness in our city and the region at a time our communities need it most.

We are Artists 4 Life in the Sound
Music ranging from folk to rock sets the stage for a music event unlike any the Sound has ever seen with musicians from cross genres converging in unison to support the kids on the streets that need support now more than ever. An open stage is set for artists to share their hearts and rock your soul on a Saturday set aside for the most unlikely manifestation of awesome Sound.
Premium audio provided by Diversified Sound will allow us to capture high quality tracks useful for future production of content fit for a wide variety of media, including Tv, radio & podcast, allowing our message of HOPE to flourish in a time it is needed most.
Live at the festival, interviews held by Radio Tacoma & Artists 4 Life in the Sound featuring foundational organizations on the front line of youth homelessness in Tacoma provide a thorough perspective on the issues related to life on the streets in our city and the perilous realities faced by the young people living unprotected in a predatory environment of survival.
In the following weeks and months we direct our attention to the solutions available to us now, and find out how to meaningfully contribute to them.

Do YOU love Tacoma?
In its latest manifestation, Tacoma's iconic 253 Heart was co-opted by local artist John James Nelson when he coupled the 253 Heart with a long-beloved, larger-than-life sign found on a post card so many Tacomans have come to love.
Created by a local musician on his way to establishing his music career, the 253 heart has become a household image.
Yes - yes you'll love Tacoma !
