About WAMO



WAMO is the Warehouse Arts Management Organization, formed in 2004 as an outcome of the Tucson Historic Warehouse Arts District master planning process.

WAMO is the group looking out for the entire  Tucson Historic Warehouse Arts District—its history and its future.   WAMO works to strengthen what’s already here—working with artists and organization who have been in the district for more than 20 years,  with those who are newly relocated, and with those who are interested in being a part of the scene in the future.

WAMO is working to:

  • Develop an intact, cohesive area with spaces for shared arts experience
  • Create a long-term marketing/publicity plan for the district
  • Ensure that all arts disciplines have a place in the district.

Mission Statement

The mission of this artist-led nonprofit is to preserve, protect, promote, and program the Tucson Historic Warehouse Arts District.

WAMO continues and develops the work of artists and related individuals who have helped to create Tucson’s Historic Warehouse Arts District as an active and varied center and community for the arts, within a downtown community that includes working artists, galleries, museums, nonprofit arts organizations, and supportive retail and residential interests.
