The Carr Center Partnership with Aquarius Press:
2009 – Present
An artist residency program that brings notable scholars and professional poets and writers to the Carr Center in Detroit. Built around Humanities-themed public readings and discussions, the residency brings together scholars, authors, artists, and musicians of color for collaborations and presentations. A core focus is to investigate how the humanities engage with urban environments. A youth component, “A Day @ The Carr,” provides workshops to Detroit-area students traditionally underserved in arts programming.
