Mission Statement

Service Center engages visitors of all ages and backgrounds in creativity as a way to build community, provide education and enrich lives -- and to transform a vacant building in support of the 40-year-old Lafayette Square Mall (which is donating the building) and the surrounding commercial and residential areas.

Description

Service Center is a community art center designed to spark real change in an area of Indianapolis poised for amazing improvement. Through creative approaches, Service Center addresses many of the issues facing Indianapolis: education, mass transit, art and culture, diversity, libraries, urban gardening, recycling, and economic development.

At Service Center, we:

  • celebrate the ethnic variety of the neighborhood, engage adults and kids in collaborative art exhibitions created by and about them
  • grow a large neighborhood garden (the first in the city on top of a parking lot)
  • host exhibitions by local and national artists
  • offer educational programs in art, performance, and creative writing
  • provide a small library, meeting area, and computer lab with Internet access
  • facilitate a neighborhood market
