OUR VISION

The Project Room is a place of creative inquiry, where different points of view and areas of expertise are presented to an audience. In addition to the arts, programs feature technology, history, geography, industry, and other fields that intersect with the current theme. The goal is to better understand how creativity works for different kinds of people, and to appreciate its relevance to everyday life.

THE BIG QUESTION

In 2011, TPR opened its doors with the question, “Why Do We Make Things?” After nearly two years of conversation, presentation, and experimentation about this theme, the theme shifted into our second "big question": How Are We Remembered?
