The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and the Humanities Center at Carnegie Mellon University welcome you to the 2018 Pittsburgh Humanities Festival - exploring the theme of Continuum: Past, Present, Future.

This third Pittsburgh Humanities Festival brings together internationally-renowned academics, artists, and intellectual innovators offering interviews, intimate conversations, and select performances focused on art, literature, music, science, policy, politics, and more—all in a lively, entertaining, accessible format in the Cultural District. It’s smart talk about stuff that matters.
