The Ark Valley Pride Celebration supports and celebrates the diversity of the Upper Arkansas River Valley. Sellars Project Space’s PfCA Program is actively involved in addressing the needs of many under-served sectors in our growing community, by providing an environment where diverse perspectives, cultures and values are accepted, appreciated and celebrated.
