Cultural Arts & Research Center
“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”
The mission of the Garvey Tubman Cultural Arts and Research Center (GTCARC) is to provide services of interest in the African American community sharing a viable support system that speaks to the community’s educational, emotional and cultural needs by providing high quality, child friendly, and relevant subject matter. GTCARC meets this mission through educational programs for youth ages five to seventeen for future success in Springfield students. We provide facilitated instructions with professional artists supporting emerging artistic minds. GTCARC empowers through creativity, showcasing, marketing, sales, self-promotion and through a mix of artistic learning that will foster lifelong connections and friendships. This authentic program is the only of its kind in the Springfield city limits or surrounding areas.
The Garvey Tubman Center Pledge
“I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed more if only they knew they were slaves.”
