Looking for a really cool thing to do? Look no further, Nina Barbuto has brought to Pittsburgh one of the most interesting ideas I have ever seen: assemble!

A maker/instigator/learner, Nina moved back to PGH from LA where she was running around from desert to beach. Nina has a M.arch from Sciarc from the MediaScapes program. She wants to grow buildings and make things happen.
Nina and Carrie Nardini started I Made It! Market before she ran away to grad school in LA. Nina came back to PGH, one thing led to another...and Assemble came to be! Assemble is a community space for arts and technology, located at 5125 Penn Avenue in the heart of the Penn Avenue Arts District. Their programs include monthly openings during the Unblurred gallery crawls, as well as workshops, lectures and community activities with a focus on providing quality creative programming for the children of our neighborhood.
|This is what it looks like to make a difference in a community|
Assemble will activate the community with the contributions and presence of the audience and makers. Assemble is a not-for-profit organization with an active, contributing board. Email Assemble at firstname.lastname@example.org; they are looking for a weekend program manager! Check them out online, "like" them on Facebook, and follow on Twitter to ensure you are up to date on what's new and exciting.
