A SPACE TO CELEBRATE, NUTURE AND EVOLVE WITH THE TACOMA COMMUNITY THROUGH FOOD, PERFORMANCE, WORK, EDUCATION AND SOCIAL CHANGE.
Alma Mater at the Carpenters Building is an artist-driven work, performance, and gathering space opening. The idea for a building that encompassed an incubator for artists, areas to perform and display their work, and an economical engine to support them was activated by Jason Heminger’s own creative journey after a three-year stint in Colorado working in education. In the summer of 2015, Jason brought on long-time friends and like-minded thinkers Aaron Spiro and Rachel Ervin to help develop his vision into a concrete plan. Since then, the Alma Mater team has received generous investment, support, and excitement for what’s to come.
