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

The Kennedy Center has spent years studying the best ways to help make the arts an integral part of all of our lives. As they have looked at the school experience, their research continues to show that students learn best in environments where learning “is active and experiential, reflective, social, evolving, and focused on problem-solving. Arts integration provides learning experiences that reflect all these characteristics.” If you are a teacher looking for ways to integrate the arts into your regular curriculum, Harrison Center artist and former high school teacher, Quincy Owens, has created a whole repository of great things to study and places in the city to take your students.
