Alma Mater, located in Downtown Tacoma is dedicated to building community. We seek to re-imagine what an arts center and cultural institution could be, redefining itself as a hub for social, economic, and cultural exchange. We operate on principles of rematriation and indigenous values under the leadership of Executive Director, Lisa Fruichantie.

Alma Mater comes to life through live performances and nourishing food created by local talent. Our concert venue, recording studio, and outdoor performance spaces offer cultural and music-based programming for artists of all calibers and stages in their career. Our restaurant and kitchen team offers seasonal cuisine at The Patio and leads HelpKitchen’s food relief efforts in Tacoma to provide meals to food-insecure individuals.

Our menu changes progressively throughout the year based on peak ingredient availability. With a focus on sustainability, we source locally from artisans, fishermen, and farmers when possible to maintain the highest quality and focus on local agriculture and food sovereignty.
