Creating Community

Across our country you will see that this is true: the difference between a good community and a GREAT community is a vibrant cultural life. The arts transcend our differences and weave a beautiful tapestry from our great diversity.

Making an Impact

The Campaign for Tateuchi Center is a rare opportunity for our community to create a true community legacy. It will delight our children, inspire our grandchildren, and create family memories that last for decades. Everyone can make a difference. Now is the time.


Something for everyone: it’s as simple as that. Performances for every taste. Affordable pricing. Easy access. Community events. Master classes. From Itzhak Perlman and Yo-Yo Ma to a Bellevue Youth Symphony concert or a high school graduation, there’s a place here for all of us.

Economic Impact

Although arts & culture are self-justifying forces for community building, our regional economic impact will be an important practical benefit. Independent studies have predicted a total economic impact of more than $500 million and the creation of 1,200 new jobs. Tateuchi Center is a great investment.

Our Promise to the Community

Tateuchi Center is committed to the power of the arts in human lives. We will present artistic, cultural, educational, and entertainment experiences of the highest quality—great performances that reflect the diverse interests and honor the cultures and customs of our neighbors. We will expand arts education opportunities; provide a performance home for select regional arts organizations; promote the interests of working artists; engage and develop new audiences; encourage participation in the arts; contribute to the economic vitality of the region; and serve as a cultural center for Eastside residents. We will do these things with a level of integrity, care, and professionalism that will earn Tateuchi Center the trust and support of the community it serves.
