outdoor art in Rainier Valley Creative District

Rainier Valley Creative District

Rainier Valley Creative District is an active arts and culture coalition that advocates for Rainier Valley’s artistic and cultural community by fostering collaboration, boosting collective visibility, and addressing economic inequity. Rainier Valley Creative District is a program of Adefua Cultural Education Workshop and is certified by the Washington State Arts Commission.

The Rainier Valley and its many neighborhoods represent some of the greatest racial and economic diversity in Seattle, and face some of the greatest development pressures and displacement risks in Seattle. Creative Districts help communities thrive, and work to support communities turn cultural activities into economic growth. To help ward off gentrification and displacement of the creative community in the face of rapid development in the Rainier Valley, we must take this window of opportunity to come together as a community and collaborate. 

Interested in learning more about the Rainier Valley Creative District, or being a part of what makes the RVCD hum? We welcome you to be a bigger part of our Cultural Community! We are looking for volunteers, donors, sponsors, and artists. Monthly meetings are the second Tuesday of the month at 6pm over Zoom.
