Cultural Event Series 2016
With sponsorship from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, DNDA brought the Cultural Event Series to the Delridge community in 2016. The series brought together over 38 community organizations and businesses, provided over 20 local artists and instructors with paid opportunities to share their talents, served over 1,500 community members and provided over 20 youth with the opportunity to support and plan events.
These events were held at DNDA’s Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, the Vietnamese Cultural Center, Camp Long and other venues in the neighborhood to showcase the rich cultural heritage of Delridge. Events included performing arts showcases, youth poetry slams, cultural food events and social justice events. This project has allowed Delridge residents to develop a greater connection with each other and with the many services that are provided in the neighborhood. When our community focuses on telling stories, sharing resources and building relationships across cultures, we can work together to shape the positive growth of Delridge.
