THANKS to the first 50!

In June, when we added the spinning globe, international-hit/stat-counter, to the bottom right of our site (the flattened version is above), we had no idea what to expect. We just thought it would be a fun way to keep up with how many states and countries were finding our website and research online. But now, since the stat-counter server is about to go down for "a few hours of maintenance" tomorrow, we thought we'd post this ...just in case our stat info disappeared somehow.

To say the least, we're definitely surprised with how it panned out 50 countries found our site(s) before all 50 states (at 32 states when posted).

So with that, we'd just like to say "thank you!"  to The United States, Germany, Canada, The United Kingdom, Netherlands, Italy, India, Taiwan, Spain, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, The Russian Federation, Pakistan, Singapore, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Portugal, Switzerland, Poland, Serbia, Turkey, Korea, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina, Belgium, Tunisia, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Sweden, Lithuania, Greece, Sudan, Israel, Madagascar, The United Arab Emirates, Iran, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Japan and  New Zealand.

Together, you've all made this quite the fun, international time for us!

Till next time,

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…

Introducing Applied Arts Education

So "more" arts education, huh?
This is a question we field from time to time when some learn we’re rolling out applied arts educational programming at PAR-Projects. 

What we’re up to is not just “more” arts education; but if it were, just more arts education would be great. It's indeed needed ...throughout the city ...throughout the country for that matter. Few would argue we have an abundance of creative thinkers and creative problem solvers.
Original & creative thought is simply becoming harder to find, especially outside of affluent communities.
That said, and like most things we do, PAR- Education is a little different from the norm. Our biggest goal is to create and support career pathways in the visual arts. Therefore, instead of teaching more traditional classes (e.g. painting, drawing, and crafts), we’re focussing on applied arts education. And by definition, “applied arts are arts in which objects are designed or created in order to be used rather than simply to…
