On Saturday, United Way showed up at King Street Station for the grand opening of Station Space, a 10,000-square-foot creativity and empowerment hub for youth of color. Station Space is a project of the city’s Cultural Space Agency, a real estate development company that secures commercial cultural spaces to build community wealth and create opportunities for ownership among Black and Indigenous communities. Station Space houses five local arts nonprofits that serve youth of color, including Red Eagle Soaring, an Indigenous youth theater company.
Red Eagle Soaring is a member of two United Way of King County racial equity groups, the Indigenous Communities Fund and the Racial Equity Coalition. For more about our racial equity work, click here.
