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.

Square Feet Cleared of Invasive Species at Delridge Wetland Park

DNDA provides affordable housing for local artists and low-income families at seven 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 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.
