Harrison Center for the Arts


The Harrison Center seeks to be a catalyst for renewal in the City of Indianapolis by fostering awareness, appreciation and community for arts and culture.


The Harrison Center is a force for cultural development in Indianapolis and a model for community arts, education, and urban revitalization programs across America. The Harrison Center addresses community problems with cultural solutions: art, music, education, and grassroots activism. They cultivate emerging art patrons by redefining the boundaries of artist and audience: everyone is part of the art.
