Other Arts Districts

The City of Seattle's Arts & Cultural Districts program is dedicated to nurturing and protecting the presence of arts and culture in neighborhoods. These elements have been shown to increase walkability, vitality, regional focus, and interest. The City's mission in creating these districts is to ensure that the organizations and individuals that give these unique neighborhoods their verve remain healthy and vibrant for future generations.

 

The Historic Central Area Arts & Culture District is dedicated to:

  • Preserving an African-American legacy in the Central Area.

  • Sustaining and strengthening the physical identity and sense of place for cultural relevancy.

  • Establishing continued support of artistic creation, economic vibrancy, livability, affordability, desirability, and artistic vitality.
