A Detroit nonprofit organization is making art accessible for everyone in many different ways, and it has some big names on board to help make it possible.
Right in the heart of Detroit, next to the DIA, is a special place to all of the arts. In fact, it’s a place where the community and the arts come together.
“The Carr Center is a multi-disciplinary arts organization,” said Sarah Norat-Phillips, from the Carr Center. “We perform. We do performances. We produce concerts. We have dance classes and we have music classes. We run visual arts programming, which is where we are right now.”
Norat-Phillips is the Carr Center production manager at their Kirby Street visual arts gallery in Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood. They’ve been serving the community for 30 years.
“For us, the arts are the lifeblood of the community,” Norat-Phillips said. “It’s how we record our history. It’s how we teach each other to think, how to analyze. How to see the world through other people’s eyes. So for us, there’s nothing more important for the development of a child or the development of a community than how strong their arts and culture programming is.”
