Team (B) Growth at PAR-Projects



Our site is closed for the winter, so we're back on track with future site + education planning. With the help of our first successful Ohio Arts Council grant, our friends at Team B Architecture & Design have been hired to help us reimagine and create a phasing strategy for the construction (and full renovation) of our 6,000 square foot building and its attached courtyard.

If you look closer at the image, you can get an early look at how our site planning is going. And if curious, some of our other partners are noted within the sketching as well.

The good news? 

To help inform the future of our Northside Headquarters, Team B has created a public input survey! If you're reading this before November 30th, 2018, you still have time to participate in this info-gathering session. Just click this sentence to be redirected to the short survey!

Specifically, we're hoping you — residents and friends afar — will help inform the design of our space to help serve your needs. All ideas will be considered, so if you're hoping our building and/or grounds will host or accommodate anything specific, please don't hesitate to let us know. We're also hoping you'll share some of your educational interests, so we can properly plan ways to help out where we can.

Thanks for participating!
Team PAR-

As a side note: If you're a dedicated follower of this blog, please excuse the brief hiatus from our monthly posts. Some unexpected challenges presented themselves towards the end of the summer and our priorities had to shift to bring everything back on track. #SmallTeamProblems. We'll be sure to share once all of hurdles are cleared and we have time to reflect.

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!

Switch Turns Ten

To commemorate a decade of business in Cincinnati, our friends at Switch Lighting & Design are hosting a Grand Re-opening and fundraiser for PAR-Projects!
Switch is owned and operated by Bertie Ray III and Drew Dearwester, who opened their first storefront on Vine Street in Over The Rhine, back in 2008.
