Connecting the Northside

The Northside of Pittsburgh is a hub of activity that houses a range of cultural landmarks such as museums, industry, historic residential neighborhoods, and more. Cultural Institutions of the Northside have come together to create a unified feel between the Central Northside and the North Shore. This capstone project aims to help bring together the people and places of the Northside, and create opportunities for cultural growth and inclusion.

This project received a RADical ImPAct Grant in 2019 from the Allegheny Regional Asset District (RAD).
