DWTN serves Bentonville with community-supported and community-driven media.
We provide local residents with the information they need to make informed decisions; convene community dialogue; bring the arts to everyone; champion the small business community; and grow as a city through respectfully sharing individual, unique perspectives.


We believe that storytelling can be used as a force for good to spark curiosity, cultivate understanding, and build bridges across differences.

What organization is behind DWTN?

DWTN Bentonville Media is powered by Downtown Bentonville, Inc.
DBI is a small non-profit located in the heart of the city’s vibrant downtown. Our mission is to be a place-maker in the economic and cultural development landscape of downtown Bentonville, while creating the social fabric that makes Bentonville so unique, welcoming, and one of the best places to live, work, and play.
