Otis Redding Center for the Arts

Located steps away from Otis Redding’s 1960s Cotton Ave office, The Otis Redding Center for the Arts will be a central destination for youth educational programming in Downtown Macon. The Center will feature two stories of classroom, practice, and studio space for Otis Redding students to explore songwriting, production, performance, and more.

Outside, an amphitheater will open up onto Downtown Macon’s main thoroughfare and serve as a venue for student performance, a music-filled community gathering space, a public face on the continued legacy of Otis Redding’s music, and a symbol of an educations dream to come to fruition.

Planning is well underway with a proposed opening in late 2024.

The Otis Redding Foundation is looking to amplify the success and significance of its programs through the development of a state-of-the-art facility. The Foundation’s most critical need is a facility that both matches the quality of content offered and presents room to grow.
