Something’s Coming is a legacy building campaign to assist the Carr Center in standing shoulder to shoulder with other strong cultural organizations in our community and help to sustain the Carr Center for another generation.

The campaign will support the Carr Center in completing and opening the Carr Center Performance Studio in Detroit’s Midtown Cultural District, and with the Carr Center Gallery, will bring African American and other artists of color to the District presenting and creating their work.
