Who We Are
District A, where arts+community meet, is a citizens’ initiative in Kennedy Heights & Pleasant Ridge that’s driving their collaboration for stronger future together.
Across these historic neighborhoods that date back to 1795 on the Montgomery Road corridor in Cincinnati, Ohio, we’re a catalyst for collaboration especially through sharing and strengthening their arts assets.
Today, these neighborhoods are diverse, vibrant family communities. Through District A, the Kennedy Heights & Pleasant Ridge Community Councils foresee an even more diverse and vibrant tomorrow – with arts of all kinds at its core.
Our Shared Vision
We will build a sense of ‘community’ beyond jurisdictional boundaries, one that values inclusion and appreciates diversity.
We will catalyze new and sustainable economic development.
We will enhance educational opportunities at all schools within our communities to encourage life-long learning through the arts.
We will enable all to seek, identify, develop and express their own artistic abilities, with or without regard to financial gain. By action of the KH & PR Community Councils, 2007; reaffirmed 2009.
Our mission is community investment. District A connects local arts, business and community assets to stimulate and sustain community vitality and economic growth within and beyond our neighborhood boundaries.
