Written by: Rebecca Hansborough

Dear Pittsburgh,

It is our sincere hope that you are staying safe and healthy during these uncertain times. We have come to remind you, this is just intermission and while we can't be together in our venues right now, we are striving to keep you connected to the arts. Check out our new digital programming that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home!

Creative Connections

How it connects:

Creative Connections are virtual learning tools designed by Trust Arts Education Teaching Artists for learners of all ages. Each lesson is only a few minutes long and uses materials that most people already have on hand. Featuring visual arts, movement, music, and more, you can connect with the arts from wherever you are!

Where to start:

Get up and Dance! In this video led by Teaching Artist Bianca Brandon, warm up and stretch your body and learn a new dance combination.

 

Harris @ Home

How it connects:

Harris Theater @ Home is a virtual cinema accessible through our website. You can purchase tickets to films currently unavailable for public rental or sale and the film distributor will share a portion of your ticket payment with the Harris Theater!

Where to start:

What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael

 

What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael

 

Available for streaming until May 8, What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael, tells the story of pioneer woman film critic Pauline Kael and how her charismatic, controversial, witty, and discerning prose as a writer for The New Yorker famously championed the New Hollywood Cinema of the late 1960s and ‘70s. Purchase tickets here.

EQT Children’s Theater Festival @ Home

How it connects:

We are not able to come together in person for the 34th annual EQT Children’s Theater Festival but we are working with our featured performing artists, local artists and organizations, and more to bring you a re-imagined version of the festival that you can enjoy from wherever you are. Check back on the festival website during May 14-17 for exciting digital content!
