Ten of Us is a one of a kind Tacoma film experience that explores themes of belonging, community building, and what it means to make your home in a city.

Ten of Us is a multifaceted project rooted in collaboration, with more than fifty Tacoma-based emcees, musicians, visual artists, activists, and organizational leaders all building a patchwork story of this bright, beautiful, diverse community.

The resulting 90 minute film guides the audience on a tour through the city via the sounds, places, and people that give Tacoma its color.

Each scene in the film was shot on location at various iconic South Sound landmarks. The Ten of Us project weaves together elements of live theater, documentary filmmaking, and concert footage, giving the audience a sense of being part of the project along with the artists and storytellers.

Experience dynamic monthly events, fascinating art, and engaging programming, all located in an anchor of Tacoma’s downtown, Tacoma Art Museum. We encourage the young and young-at-heart to join the museum and get involved.

Contemporaries is an outstanding way to network with other professionals and connect through art via thoughtful exhibitions, exciting events, and enriching programs. All Contemporaries events are 21+.
