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, Arts In Nature Festival, and Creative Advantage.

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 our Wetlands Restoration and Stewardship Project works to expand local permaculture and access to affordable healthy food, 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 Let's Talk Race Series aims to challenge institutional racism and foster a culture of belonging and respect by connecting community organizations and individuals in the Delridge community and beyond through film, dialogue, storytelling and restorative justice.
