Overview

We aim to make the arts accessible to everyone by bringing a variety of innovative events and inspiring presentations that engage the mind, heart, and spirit.

We offer several series of cultural programming, including Strong Women of the Bible, which features female Biblical heroes, and Our Boys Discussed, an interactive discussion surrounding the HBO television series. We also partner with local arts organizations to create engaging events, including the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Cincinnati Ballet. We invite you to join us for one of our current offerings, listed below.
