Multicultural Pittsburgh Online Digital Festival

Spring 2020

Welcome to our festival of work from 82-284 Multicultural Pittsburgh, a course exploring cultural, language and identity.

In usual times we invite you to view work in the Askwith Kenner Global Languages & Cultures Room, but these are not usual times. Students this year have been asked to tell short stories, explore their own context, use what they’ve learned and reflect by creating digital pieces. The brief has been open and student have used what they have to hand.
