We're seeing increasingly creative uses for shipping containers, which now includes an outdoor theater space. Currently seeking finances on crowdfunding platform Fundly, the PAR-Project is using repurposed shipping containers in their attempts to open an Arts and Education Center in Cincinnati. This center will teach artistic skills such as graphic design and video editing.
In addition to utilizing crowdsourcing, the PAR-Project's fundraising efforts include a membership drive. The first step in building this Northside Center involves stabilizing the land and building an outdoor theater to screen movies. They will be offering a number of perks to members, including free access to events and film screenings. Members would also receive first pick of classes and exclusive offers in addition to a cooler and other swag.
