Alease A. Frieson is a well-known figure on the Tacoma scene. She is an entrepreneur, producer, content creator, and more. A major supporter of artists and musicians in our community, she is the force behind 733 Arts and On Point Booking. She has been booking independently from Olympia to Seattle since 2005. She also instructs Pilates through her own independent studio.
Without a doubt, she knows how to get stuff done.
She is also a self-identified nerd, which is why I’ve invited Alease to speak on the panel I’m moderating at Jet City Comic Show: “Making Space: Accessibility and Diversity in Geek Culture.” Come listen as we converse with the equally awesome panelists Anna Nepomuceno, Naarah McDonald, and Stephanie Anne Johnson at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 26, in Room 405 at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center.

It’s official: I’ll be moderating a panel for Tacoma’s Jet City Comic Show!
Panelists Alease Frieson, Anna Nepomuceno, Naarah McDonald, and Stephanie Anne Johnson are on board to discuss the topic “Making Space: Accessibility and Diversity in Geek Culture.” We’ll talk about the importance of making space for diverse content creators, new narratives, and a wider range of characters, as well as how to create accessible and welcoming environments.
Tacoma is high on awesomeness and low on media choice. To fix this, I present Amplify Tacoma.
The first collaboration meeting is in downtown Tacoma on Saturday, December 12, at 10:30 a.m., location to be revealed upon confirmation of attendance. Follow Amplify on Facebook, and show your support.
