Our Mission

For 25 years, the mission of the Carr Center has been to leverage the essence and power of African and African-American art to inspire, entertain, challenge and educate. With the 2017-2018 Splash Series, the Carr Center is building upon that mission with more music, more art, more venues, and more excitement. The Splash Series is dynamic and fluid. Its only constant is to follow the lead of the city from which it was born. Its only goal is to create greater engagement between artists and their audience.

Our Places

The Carr Center Network of Community Hubs: To house our multidisciplinary arts programming,the Carr Center has brought together multiple collaborative partners to form a constellation of venues stretching across urban and suburban neighborhoods. It’s designed specifically to provide a unique, up close and personal experience between artist and audience.
