The Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center

A home for The Human Race's education programs and technical arts

The Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center Performance Space

Through the generous leadership of Caryl Philips and the Jesse and Caryl Philips Foundation, together with many other donors, the Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center of The Human Race became a reality in January 2006. During a 2015 renovation, a new lighting system and seating for 60 people were installed. This facility and its programming inspires that "spark of creativity" in all of us – children, teens and adults.

"As one of the three founders of The Human Race," stated Caryl Philips, "I have been proud to watch the progress the company has made since 1986. I am so pleased to be able to help The Human Race further their goals."
