A Second Look For The First Time

If you’re not familiar with us, hello, we’re Professional Artistic Research Projects Incorporated. We’re a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The cool kids, and everyone else for that matter, call us PAR-Projects — pronounced / pär ˈpräjˌekts /  — and we’ve been creating experimental art experiences throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky since 2010. 
If you're already familiar with PAR-, hello again! New to us or not, we hope you'll lend us a few moments to get through this post. Our goal is simple: We'd like to get reacquainted. A lot is going on with our growing organization so, as Executive Director, there's no better time to reintroduce ourselves. And if all goes well, this will become an annual address — a progress report of sorts.
Back to the basics though: Our mission is to help empower community in the arts. As educators, we provide weekend workshops & multi-week classes, related to career development & skills training. A…

Gabrielle Roach: 5 Questions + 1 #FunFact

Gabrielle Roach was born in St. Louis, Missouri and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana. She received her BFA in painting and printmaking from Indiana State University in 2014 and was awarded a Master of Fine Arts degree from Miami University in 2017.

What does community mean to you?
Community to me, extends beyond just where you live.  Communities can be elective and centered around one's interests. As a creative, one of my most precious communities is that of the art world.  I've forged professional networks and life long friendships with fellow artists that are some of my most enriching and rewarding relationships.
Why are you interested in PAR-Education? I'm interested in PAR-Education not only because I love teaching but also because I truly believe in the transformative power of the arts.  I also enjoy working within my community because I like to feel connected to the place I live and work and the people who make Cincinnati neat!
