DNDA's mission is to integrate Art, Nature, and Neighborhood to build and sustain a dynamic Delridge. Across all of DNDA's programs, we are dedicated to addressing the needs and priorities of our communities.
DNDA supports integrative art programming through the EcoArts Program, Arts in Nature Festival, and Creative Advantage.
Several of these programs are held at DNDA's historic Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, which houses an alternative high school, nonprofit offices, room rentals, and affordable live-work spaces for artists of all disciplines. Youngstown is 1 of 7 affordable housing facilities DNDA owns and operates, serving 144 families in West Seattle.
DNDA is also committed to restoring, preserving, and protecting our urban greenspaces. Our Urban Forest Restoration Program engages volunteers in environmental restoration work across 10 greenspaces in West Seattle. We host volunteer events every Tuesday and Saturday from 10am-2pm throughout the year. Additionally, through DNDA's Delridge Wetland Park Project, we host monthly volunteer opportunities that focus on the conversion of a former Seattle City Light property into a preserved public greenspace that contains a restored, functioning wetland, provides a community gathering space, and an accessible outdoor classroom for local students.
