Pittsburgh's passionate, high school artists, where you at? 

We want YOU to tackle the subject of educating the homeless. We're looking for visual artists, literary artists, musicians, and dancers capable of expressing the desperate need for educational opportunities in the homeless community.  We're looking for adolescent talent that touches a high school audience in a way that creates an awareness of how powerful education is, edifies them on the reality of homelessness, and equips them with the mindset to go out and make a change in their community.

If you experienced housing instability and are willing to share your testimony at this event, please let us know.
Deadline for submissions is April 10th. Visit
