CAR (Center for Artistic Revolution) strives to show activism through creativity and cultural work. Every year, CAR hosts Corazon to showcase the graciously donated work of local community artists. Corazon is where we see how each person expresses themselves, their lives, their identities, their families, and their communities.
In addition to Corazon, CAR also sponsors Rainbow Camp, the Big Gay Variety Show series, and Little Rock Pride Fest. However, CAR is not just about big events. CAR also sponsors a number of programs designed to foster unity and offer safety and privacy to LGBTQ youth.
CAR was founded in 2003 in Little Rock, Arkansas by LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) and straight allies. CAR is a 501(c)(3) sponsored statewide organization that believes that all people should have equitable access to fair treatment, a democratic political process as well as economic and environmental justice.
CAR is an inclusive, inter-generational LGBTQ-centric organization working with our Allies to build and sustain a progressive movement in Arkansas that connects people, communities and issues for the purpose of ending discrimination, securing equal rights, protections and fair treatment for ALL Arkansans.
CAR offices are located inside the First Presbyterian Church in Downtown Little Rock.
