Programs

Our program/artistic vision: Big Car works to help improve life in Indianapolis through cultural programs, events and projects that encourage people to be: Creative - we bring adults and children fun opportunities to make art, record or write stories, make music, and see that everyone can and should create. Curious - we find fun ways to challenge people to ask why and how things work and participate in joining others in finding these answers. Adventurous - we ask people to take chances, try new things, go new places, see and learn new things. Tolerant - often using collaboration, we bring people of different backgrounds and cultures together to learn from each other. Connected - people often feel disconnected from the cultural and community offerings in Indianapolis. We help them become part of the shared joy of our city. Healthy - our activities include physical aspects like playing, walking and cycling. And we focus on encouraging healthy eating and nutrition with projects related to urban gardening, cooking and dining. Happy - studies show creativity can help people feel happier and healthier. By providing positive, playful, surprising and fun experiences, we do little things to brighten people's lives.
