Creating greater equity is urgent. This is the discussion we’ve been having at the New Community Visions Initiative convenings across the country. In these gatherings, we’ve focused (or tried to) on community goals as the outcome, and arts sector needs as a means to that end. Importantly, we’re talking about equity through art, not for art. How do the arts contribute to creating more equitable places?

This was fun to research and write. Thanks to the many of you who contributed. 
When German immigrants settled in Cincinnati in big numbers during the 19th century, they helped create one of America’s first boomtowns, and at the time, one of the nation’s largest cities. With them, the new inhabitants also brought new perspectives and attitudes towards the arts, culture and arch...

Hey friends - someone asked me to do this fun thing! So please add your comments and love on the Virgin page! Let's show world travelers that Cincinnati has fans. Most of the other posts on this blog have no comments - but we aren't like that. We chatter. Go for it.
  There’s a mass of gaze-worthy architecture all over Cincinnati – lots of it historic, Italianate, and art deco especially. But when only m...

Grateful for Artists, New Blog.

As in many other renovated urban places, the people of this neighborhood—old and new residents alike—are challenged by the changes here. We don’t know each other as well as we should, making it harder for us to address these issues. 

It is our artists who are leading us to a more connected place— creating a pathway to our future with art in the streets. They do this in neighborhoods across our region. Here are a few examples from Over-the-Rhine.
