the project

We at PAR-Projects need your support to help us expand and improve our arts and education campus, located in one of Cincinnati's most diverse and eclectic communities — Northside!

As you can see by the campaign tracker below, the support we're hoping to gain from our neighbors is just a portion of a much larger campaign. And as noted by the purple and green areas, we've already raised over $150,000 and have AN EXTREMELY GENEROUS, $150,000 match from The Haile Foundation waiting to kick in when we reach the $300,000 mark!




The orange section above is where you come in. We're on a mission to raise $100,000 of support from members and appreciators of the Northside community! And even that has already generated over $5,000 of matching funds, directly from our Northside neighbors! So yes, your donation will count twice!!

So what's this for?

Here at PAR Projects, it is our goal to provide deep-seated support for underrepresented artists while also empowering our surrounding community to creatively shine and thrive.

Our proposed project will address the needs of both artists and the community by aligning with five areas of need identified by our neighbors:

  • Community green space
  • Community gathering space
  • Recreational space
  • Creative studio space
  • Family and kid-friendly

With your help, we will create a new and exciting arts hub right here in Northside!

the steps

We've already started some of the smaller projects around our campus.

Take a look at our campaign brochure for more details on how your support will help PAR Projects create a community gathering space arts hub right here in Cincinnati!

why we're doing it

We believe in being a part of the community where we are located. Through a series of surveys and conversations, we have identified several areas where PAR can support our neighbors.

Our first order of business is to create Northside's FIRST outdoor movie theater!  We have purchased, paid off, and have begun renovating a few parcels of land and a complex of connected buildings on Hoffner Street. Further, with the help of ArtsWave, we've invested in the equipment needed to bring a real outdoor theater experience to the neighborhood to accompany our galleries, community room, and studios.


The overall budget for Phase 1 of our project is $600,000 to cover the following expenses:

Complete Purchase of 1646 Hoffner Street - $200,000

Studio and Facility Upgrades - $100,000

COVID Contingency Funds - $100,000

Roofing - $50,000

Restroom Addition - $50,000

Facade and Gallery Improvements - $50,000

Maintenance and Repair Reserve - $50,000

The Northside Community Campaign will support the expenses associated with "Studio and Facility Upgrades."
