What does community mean to you?  
For me, community means support.  Everyone needs a community of people who share similar interest, a community that they can both build and depend on.  Building community is something that is ingrained in all of my artwork.  I am constantly looking for opportunities to connect with others and grow my community. 

Why are you interested in PAR-Education or community education in general?  
Community education is crucial to growing any community.  It gives a community the ability to grow and create together.  Co-creation is a powerful tool in getting to know the community you are part of. 

What do you work toward in your free time?
I write in my free time.  I am currently working towards shooting a pilot for a TV show I am creating. 

If you were a brand, what would be your motto?  
"We're all going to die anyway..."

What would you do in the event of a zombie apocalypse?
I would watch as many episodes of the Walking Dead as possible to learn how to fight the zombies!

#Fun Fact:
Kailah was the first black homecoming Queen at Wright State University.

Billy Colbert: 5 Questions + 1 #FunFact

Billy Colbert is a working artist and new media art professor at Delaware State University, who coincidentally started the university's New Media major at the beginning of his tenure. As an artist, he has extensively shown works of various media throughout the country.

2018? Let’s try that again!..

[ 2min VID + 6min TXT ]

Much like our Happy Winter video embedded above and/or Linked HERE , we’re ready to repeat.

When looking over notes and reviewing the ups & downs of 2018, they read a bit differently than years past. Though rocky at times, we’ve found a formula that pushes us as an organization and now have a practice round under our belt. The tweaking process is a go!

Two thousand eighteen was a change of pace. Personally speaking,  YeAr ONe as a parent was officially under way. “Yay Waylan!!” But in the same breath, Team PAR- was gellin’ and able to launch two new initiatives — an applied arts education program in Kennedy Heights and new strategies to help fund local artists, starting in Northside. The boat was rocked, construction milestones were reached at Headquarters, and our organization as a whole continued to mature. Memorable times!

Though we only hosted two full exhibitions last year, both were rather impressive. Christian Benefiel thrilled us all with This Syst…

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…
