The Pittsburgh Humanities Festival, a production of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and the Humanities Center of Carnegie Mellon University, is a three-day gathering of internationally-renowned academics, artists, and intellectual innovators in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District. The second Festival, March 24 – 26, 2017, will offer intimate conversations, interviews, and performances focused on art, literature, music, science, policy, politics, and more—all helping us to explore what it means to be human. It’s smart talk about stuff that matters.
Featured events include a conversation with the writers of “The Onion,” a talk by Bassem Yousef, and a Conversation with Kathleen Neal Cleaver and Denise Oliver-Velez. To get tickets and learn more about these featured events and the myriad of other enriching conversations happening throughout the weekend, visit the Pittsburgh Humanities Festival website.
