Welcome to Peaslee!
We offer participatory education opportunities in the heart of Over-the-Rhine that are open to all but designed to lift up the voices of our low-income neighbors. Through creative expression, through circles of conversation, and through events that build community, we seek to live up to the legacy of our founding mothers.
Join Agents of Change
Our program for youth ages 11-14 focuses on self-expression and social change. Programming includes art, music, spoken word, creative writing, and community engagement. Agents of Change meet on Fridays from 3 pm to 5:30 pm from September through May.
Our Agents, together with participants in Over-the-Rhine Community Housing’s Children’s Creative Corner, have been campaigning to save the basketball courts at Main St. and Schiller Street, across from Rothenberg Preparatory Academy. You can aid their efforts by signing this petition. The Keep Our Courts Campaign has also received attention from Soapbox Cincinnati and WCPO.
Participants in our Agents of Change summer camp created a stop-motion animation video. They traced neighborhood scenes and put silhouettes of themselves in the scenes. Their silhouettes pushed out words that threaten and brought in words that strengthen community.
They worked hard on this video, but the results, we think, are stunning. Enjoy.
