Have an interest in public speaking? Love sharing art with others? Starting in October, ArtWorks will be offering walking tours of our murals located downtown and in Over-the-Rhine. ArtWorks is looking for responsible and mature individuals with a passion for the arts, an enthusiasm for Cincinnati history, and the ability to tell a good story. Tour guides must have a flexible schedule and be able to give 2-4 tours per month as needed. Tour guides need to be able to stay on their feet for at least 2 hours at a time and in any weather condition. Adult tour guides will volunteer alongside paid youth Apprentice tour guides to give tours to the general public as well as private groups. Tours will run seasonally from April to November, kicking off this October and November before taking a break for the winter. For additional information including the tour guide application please visit this Artworks webpage.

Our Downtown on the Move

Downtown Cincinnati is now home to over 4,200 residents, with more arriving every month as new condos and apartment homes are completed. The Downtown Residents Council works to develop a community atmosphere, conducts projects to improve the quality of life, and voices concerns of residents at City Hall.

We work closely with the Police Department on safety issues and Downtown Cincinnati Inc. and 3CDC on development and promotion efforts.
