Congratulations to our 2023 grant Recipients!
Our mission is to create space for BIPOC communities to reconnect with the land and to our cultures through food and farming. We do this by growing culturally important food, hosting educational programs and workshops, holding cultural arts events and healing retreats, and by replanting native forests and pollinator plants. Our vision is a world where all beings are treated with respect and care and we as humans are in right relationship with our non human siblings on this planet. We believe the way we care for the land and waters, the way we grow food, the way we celebrate with and honor each other, are important practices to move us closer to this vision.
We are an arts organization in Seattle. El Sueño meaning "the dream," is named for the collective pursuit of the American dream. We use art as a way to uplift people of color and serve our region through arts engagement specifically designed to empower marginalized communities. We use our resources and our art as a weapon against systems of oppression to bring el sueño (the dream) to life.

Seda Iranian Theatre Ensemble was founded in 2019 as the first Iranian theatre company in Seattle, USA. We named our ensemble Seda – which means ‘voice’ in Persian – because we believe that every human has a voice, and every voice deserves to be heard. We chose the name Seda as we aim to create an opportunity for refugees and immigrants whose voice cannot be heard. In a world where the powerful majority controls the mainstream media and is the dominating voice, theatre is an incredible place to be seen and heard. Theatre is created out of nothing: all it takes is a viewer and a performer. The stage could be a house, a performance hall, an alley, or an abandoned warehouse. At Seda Theatre, we want to amplify and give voice to the issues and stories of immigrants by creating work on stage and through imagination and art. We will teach and learn. Seda is home to all immigrants with a “voice”. Be Seda’s voice!
We aim to expand how we activate spaces and places for Native people. Our welcoming and inclusive events will include powwows, Coastal Days, veterans’ ceremonies, parade groups, canoe mini-journeys, and art exhibits in places such as Victor Steinbrueck Park and Camp Long. Cross-cultural exchange and relationship building are key priorities. We continually work to address the invisibility of Native peoples by giving them opportunities to strengthen their identity, cultural knowledge, and leadership skills while also fostering engagement between Native and non-Native youth, adults, families, and leaders.
