2 Minute Survey: Applied Arts Education Requests in Kennedy Heights (2019)

Because we can't (yet) offer all of our classes all of the time, we're asking our community to let us know what classes they'd be interested in seeing us offer in Kennedy Heights over the next year or two and what times would work best.

Please find our two minute survey below. And if interested in viewing class descriptions, please visit our website — www.parprojects.com/Education — for more information.

Thanks in advance for your participation!

A Humble Community Festival | Northside Summer Market | NSM019

Every year, a month after what is arguably Cincinnati's most creative few days of the summer — Northside's 4th of July Parade and Rock & Roll Festival — a humble neighborhood celebration takes place to invite everyone back into our community.

This event is Northside Summer Market — a community-wide yard sale with free arts & music programming. And on Saturday, August 3rd, we're doing it again!
As always, a day or two before the event, we'll release a printed and online map of all of our neighbors who have registered their houses' yard sales. But if you just want to visit Northside and go for it, two good starting places are the Yard Sale's Central Location at CAIN (4230 Hamilton Ave.) and our art-infused beer garden at Humble Monk Brewery (1641 Blue Rock St.).  This year, to help beat the heat, CAIN will be hosting a Cool Down Corner where festival patrons can enjoy grilled entrees, cold drinks, fresh fruit, FREE popsicles, kid's activities and a boo…

Announcements for Northside Summer Market 2019

As the summer progresses, so does our planning for this years Northside Summer Market.  If you follow us on our social media platforms, you already know the date for this year's event is Saturday, August 3rd.  However, you probably don't know about the developing details of the day.  While gears are still turning, we can confirm the event schedule which will include split programming between the morning and evening portions of the day as well as other exciting details. 

As per tradition, Northside Summer Market will coincide with the World's Longest Yard Sale weekend so community wide yard sales will take place throughout Northside, with a central location congregating at CAIN - 4230 Hamilton Ave.  Yard sales will begin at 9:00 am and continue to 2:00 pm.  Our friends at CAIN will also host a family cook out and cooling zone from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm at the central location.  If you are interested in registering your house on the map or registering for a spot at the centra…

A timeline showing a bit more of PAR-Projects.

Over the years, we admittedly haven't been the best at sharing our story. Oftentimes it's a too-much-to-do-to-slow-down type of vibe. But until now, the "how" was a dilemma as well.

To say the least, our story is a slow-and-steady, observing-and-reinventing, complicated type of journey, but we're happy to have figured out a decent way to walk everyone through it. From illegal evictions in the private sector, to the loss of a 30 year lease in the public sector, we've found a way to keep the arts at our forefront and continue pushing forward ...so it's time to share a bit of that.

Unfortunately we couldn't embed the timeline in this post -- Blogger securities and all -- but hop on over to our information page for the newest feature of our hand-coded website ...by clicking this last part of this sentence. ... or by clicking the image below.



Thanks again for your time, Team PAR-

Humble Monk x PAR-Projects

We wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the opening of our friends Paul and Mike Kemp's new brewery in Northside - Humble Monk. 

Humble Monk Brewing Company is a family operated craft brewery located at 1641 Blue Rock St.  A large portion of the brewery equipment has been re-purposed from food grade equipment and the taproom is decorated with rich dark wood, up-cycled spool tables, warm light and plenty of board games.


The environment is family friendly and will surely become a Northside staple.  Mike, the brew master, has been home brewing for 30+ years and plans to brew a large variety of Belgian Style beers.  Paul, Mike's son, helps run the taproom and administration side of the brewery.


Sounds great, right?

If so, you can visit the Taproom on Saturday, April 13th
for The Humble Hop Print Shop fundraiser for PAR-Projects.

The Humble Monk parking lot will be transformed into a beer garden with music and tacos by Taco Oso.  Inside, team PAR will be facilitating a Free p…

Applied Arts Education via KHAC x PAR-Projects

As many of you know, last year (2018) we quietly launched our digital media education program, in collaboration with our good friends at Kennedy Heights Arts Center. Our primary goal was to help fill our city's digital media education gap, while creating pathways to new careers and higher education. A year later, the program is in full swing and we're launching new classes quarterly.

Great news:Cincy Chicheard about the status of the program and some of our new offerings!

Linked below is a great write-up they recently published. It's been years in the making, so we appreciate the help in spreading the word. Thanks again for the coverage Cincy Chic!
