THIS IS SUMMER. THIS IS PORCHING.
In 2014, the Harrison Center began encouraging people to gather on their porches with friends and neighbors, to share food and drink and to help cultivate a sense of community in our urban neighborhoods. Since that time, the popularity of "porching" has soared. In 2016, through a partnership with the Indianapolis 500, the Porch Party movement grew to include the entire state of Indiana, and hundreds have joined in the fun.
