Young Professionals Group

Being a DSA member gives you access, influence and opportunity. Together, we’re shaping the future of downtown and the city. We call ourselves City Makers, and we’ve launched a new opportunity for DSA young professionals to engage with fellow members and get more involved in our work building a healthy, vibrant center city.

Our quarterly YPG event series combines a brief program with networking in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Over light appetizers and drinks, guests will hear from DSA and learn about our latest projects and initiatives.

Young Professionals Group will return in June. Subscribe here for updates and YPG news.

Previously at Young Professionals Group: ARTS at King Street Station

April 16, 2019

Attendees were treated to the first private event hosted at ARTS at King Street Station, the city’s new office of Arts & Culture. The brand-new facility includes a studio for artists in residence and a 7,500-square-foot cultural space. The gallery currently features yəhaw̓, an exhibition by Indigenous creatives.

Guests heard from Ruri Yampolsky, the city’s public art director for the Office of Arts & Culture, who explained how the vision and creativity of artists are integrated into the public realm. Don Blakeney, DSA’s vice president of Advocacy & Economic Development, discussed the importance of arts and culture in our community.
