COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: Our students will be taking their projects out into public spaces in Pittsburgh, from farmers' markets to the Global Climate Strike protests, to engage with local people. We're also running two weekend sessions—open to the public—as part of the Many Tomorrows Festival, an international, distributed sequence of events dedicated to alternative futures, and the role of arts in figuring them out and making them happen. Local stakeholders from government and community organizations will be invited.
PARTNERS: We are working with the Plurality University Network, a global, open organization connecting artists, designers, writers, and activists who use the power of imagination to enable alternative futures. In this project, they bring an international network of members who will participate in person and remotely in advising students on their projects and providing inspiration.
