Storyburgh is a not for profit community storytelling platform whose missions are 1) to empower marginalized populations to tell their underreported stories, and 2) to provide a platform to amplify their voices, enabling charitable stakeholders in those communities to visualize and understand the causes they serve.
Connecting Communities Through Storytelling Pittsburgh is a city of neighborhoods and rivers, and residents notoriously boast about rarely crossing these lines. It is the Northside or the Outside. But what connects our city unlike any person, place, or thing? The bus routes! Come hear Pittsburghers tell their stories about using public transportation and how these experiences have shaped relationships with people and neighborhoods outside of their own.
