SPRING 2010: Pittsburgh's First Art and Technology Festival
Friday, April 2 of 2010, the GA/GI (pronounced GAHgee) is Geek Arts and Green Innovators Festival-- the first arts and technology fest in the city of Pittsburgh with Passports Art Diversity Project serving as organizer and promoter. "We're excited to be doing this for the city," said Brenda Brown, Passports Co-founder. "It's high time, we showcased what this city has to offer in technology and ecology on a level where average people can see it, touch it and get involved."Instead of taking the festival to some lofty downtown site, Passports plans to utilize a popular monthly art crawl in the east end of Pittsburgh known as "Unblurred" for the event venue. Unblurred pulls its audienace from all over Southwest Pennsylvania with several neighborhoods within walking or bike riding distance distance. Plans for events include a fashion show with Eco wear and LED-lighted clothing, an Art Robots Show; technogy exhibitions, a fuel efficient car show, and vendors from a variety of eco-friendly companies.For additional information on how to get involved visit the GA/GI site. or e-mail email@example.com.
