As January comes to a close...

We'd more than likely be upset with ourselves if we ended up not posting anything this month. So, without further ado, "Happy New Year!" ...sorry we almost forgot.

Still, we wanted to let you know that the planning of our 2012 season is well under way! For starters, we've been invited to participate in this year's FOTOFOCUS exhibition (details to the right). We've also been coordinating some pop-up exhibitions in new neighborhoods and putting together a major interdisciplinary art event for late spring (details launching soon). And to keep the ball rolling, we recently met with a lot of the city's art centers and plan to start working on our Driven 31 series in the next month or two.

Our major capital campaign to build an Art & Education Center will be launching soon as well. So, feel free to link to our Building Plans page or TheRoadToRefresh.com for details on the structure ...if you're unfamiliar with our design.

So, while all of that is being finalized, we'd like to, AGAIN, thank everyone who made 2011 such a memorable year for us. The amount of community and media support has been greatly appreciated. And as we continue to update our press postings, we'd like to leave you with some links that we've found:


And finally, if you've been keeping up with this website recently, you've probably noticed things are beginning to change, so we appreciate your patience if you've caught us on one of our testing days this month. We're working to bring you a nice, cohesive site, so please bear with us ...and feel free to follow our movements on your own or via one of the tools in the far right column (towards the bottom).

Thanks again for everything,
 parProjects

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…

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!
