Cities around the world are finding amazing ways to combine programming for children, creative problem-solving, and environmental initiatives. We are hoping to develop Cincinnati’s first creative reuse center that puts scrap materials in the hands of our most creative citizens-young people.

When Open-Ended is up and running we will begin recruiting scrap materials and volunteers. Until then, this webpage describes our vision, who we are, and how you can help.
