Monday Afternoon Speakers Bureau: Oliver Ragsdale Jr and the Carr Cultural Arts Center
You know the drill. It’s Monday, we reveal more content that we are developing for the Speakers Bureau.
Today we feature the Carr Cultural Arts Center and the man with the plan Mister Oliver Ragsdale Jr. The Carr Center off of Grand River in Harmonie Park is kind of a one-stop shop for all things arts and culture-related. They teach everything from modeling techniques to ballroom dancing. They have all kinds of space for you to put your creative endeavors to work– gallery space, rehearsal space, classrooms and even a giant stage that they are rehabbing. All in, they play a strong role in making sure the local population has access to the sorts of facilities and mentoring that they help them go from idea to action.
Hear it all from Oliver himself in this week’s video:
