Act Up is a Creative Community Engagement organization and nonprofit startup for Black Trans and Queer (LGBTQ+) residents in Pittsburgh. Our mission is to utilize art and making to reconnect, celebrate, and heal our community. We engage with our community through creative workshops and events hosted by local Black LGBTQ+ artists. Through Act Up, artists also have access to resources, tools, and opportunities to further their creative practice. Whether that be through funded residencies or collaborations, or even selling work through retail.
