We’re glad you’re here! Life in Deep Ellum exists for the cultural center built for the artistic, social, economic and spiritual benefit of Deep Ellum and urban Dallas.
Deep Ellum has historically been a gathering place for people on the margins. At LIDE, we strive to create a safe environment for everyone, an invitation into something none of us can enjoy alone: Community. We hope within our walls you will experience a deep sense of connection with others. And though our energetic core is a community of faith, you don’t have to share our faith to join us. Someone once said of LIDE, “Nobody fits, but everyone belongs,” and we couldn’t agree more.
