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 !
