Integrating Art, Nature, and Neighborhood to build and sustain a dynamic Delridge.

DNDA collaborates with local creatives and organizers to develop projects that engage young and diverse communities.  Many of these programs are held at DNDA's historic Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, which houses an alternative high school, nonprofit offices, affordable room rental rates, and 36 affordable live-work spaces for artists of all disciplines.

DNDA also supports integrative art programming through the EcoArts Program and the Arts In Nature Festival.

DNDA is committed to restoring, preserving, and protecting our natural habitat by developing community stewards.

Our Urban Forest Restoration Program engages volunteers to work at 8 Seattle parks in West Seattle, and the Delridge Wetland Park expands local permaculture while providing a children's teaching garden for youth environmental science lessons.


DNDA provides affordable housing for local artists and low-income families at 7 properties in the Delridge corridor. All of our housing options are less expensive than for-profit buildings so that families with lower incomes can always live in Delridge.

Our 2018 Let's Talk Race Series challenged institutional racism and foster a culture of belonging and respect by connecting community organizations and individuals through film, dialogue, storytelling and restorative justice.
