Downtown Brooklyn Arts Alliance was founded to actively build relationships among peers at organizations that are diverse in mission, size, age, and constituencies represented and served, and to provide avenues for collaboration and the leveraging of our collective strength to help all member organizations reach their full potential.

We are committed to ensuring the equity and the diversity of voices represented in all DBAA programs and initiatives and seek, like the arts and cultural endeavors our organizations collectively champion, to foster an appreciation and understanding of the broad spectrum of individual differences – cultural, racial, religious, socio-economic, or based on sexual identity, gender, physical, developmental or intellectual ability – as well as a spirit of collegiality and friendship among those who participate in our activities and initiatives.
