artist Talk performance series

Art is an expression of our deeper selves, our lives, and our experiences. Art offers a way for us to connect through common themes and normalizes the fact that we all go through different phases of life. Creators need a place to connect on a deeper level with others who share the same lifestyle and experiences they do, and that's the inspiration behind artist talk.

“Truly beautiful.” - Artist Talk Guest

“I didn’t even know I needed what Artist Talk was until I went” - Artist Talk Guest

"This was a gentle conversation around very serious mental health concerns in the everyday lives of creators and their peers hasn’t taken the spotlight in our region until now."​

Purpose 

With Artist Talk, we aim to:

  • Normalize having honest conversations about mental health and knowing when to ask for help

  • Provide an accessible, fun, and welcoming avenue for artists to gather and walk away with real resources to improve everyday life

  • Build a community of like-minded individuals and reverberate change throughout the greater community, improving

Through our nonprofit partnerships, we’re also able to (discreetly and confidentially) get attendees connected to real mental health resources on the spot.

SERIES ACCOMPLISHMENTS 

Since its founding, Artist Talk has:

  • Given a platform to dozens of Pittsburgh artists ready to share vulnerably, inspiring others to do the same

  • Welcomed over 200 guests between our two events into a safe creative space, sparking friendships, collaborations, and celebrations

  • Connected at least 5 of our neighbors with therapists and mental health support at or immediately following the event

  • Raised money for our nonprofit beneficiaries, expanding not only our impact but the impact of other organizations doing incredible things for Pittsburgh.

"but im not an artist"

Art is an expression of our deeper selves, our lives, and our experiences. It’s our stories and the things that make us human. Art offers a way for us to connect through common themes and normalizes the fact that we all go through different phases of life. 

Know what that means? Not only are you an artist… but you are art.

And you deserve to thrive, too. 

Our guests have the chance to build connections with people just like them while enjoying art, food, and drinks, and getting access to resources without feeling any pressure or stress that might come from not knowing where to turn.
