We seek to nurture a racially and culturally diverse community of playwrights, directors, actors and technical specialists to hone their craft and to network creative opportunities. Finally, we support a racially and culturally diverse management staff and board of directors who, together, promote audiences that reflect the rich variety of our Pittsburgh community. Through such sharing of talents, resources, perspectives and experiences we aspire to provide artistic enlightenment that will strengthen our civic community.

In late 2008, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust transformed the last standing adult bookstore on Liberty Avenue into a dedicated arts space. Built in the late 1920s, over the years 943 Liberty Avenue housed a variety of retail businesses, from home furnishings to hardware and for a brief time, during the 1960s, this space was an arcade and then used as an accordion school.
Now owned and operated by the Trust, the 943 Liberty Avenue showcases exhibitions curated by the Trust's visual arts department.
