Pittsburgh First Art and Technology Festival Being Organized in the East End

Coming in April of 2010, the GA/GI (pronounced GAHgee) is a Geek Arts and Green Innovators Festival-- the first arts and technology fest in the city of Pittsburgh with the Passports Art Diversity Project serving as organizer and promoter.
"We're excited to be doing this for the city," said Christine Bethea, Passports Director. "It's high time, we showcased what this city has to offer in technology and ecology on a level where average people can see it, touch it and get involved."

Instead of taking the festival to some lofty downtown site, Passports had chosen to utilize a popular monthly art crawl in the east end of Pittsburgh as the event's venue which pulls people from all over the city with several neighborhoods within walking or bike riding distance distance.Plans include a fashion show with Eco wear and LED-lighted styles, an Art Robots Show; technogy exhibitions, a fuel efficient car show, and vendors from a variety of eco-friendly companies. For additional information on how to get involved visit the GA/GI site. or e-mail passports.art@gmail.com.
