The Amazing Assemble

Assemble

GroupI am so glad I didn’t let the road closed signs and one way streets deter me from finding this gem.  Assemble is an amazing space that is doing amazing work.  I know, I need to work on my slight tendency to use repetitive hyperbole.  But this little space in a struggling section of Pittsburgh deserves it.

In their words, “Assemble is an open physical space in an urban neighborhood in Pittsburgh. We unite artists, technologists, and makers with our neighbors of all demographics. Assemble provides a platform for experiential learning, opening creative processes, and building confidence through making.”

Jess graciously agreed to let me stop by and speak with me about their space.  She shared that community investment and empowerment are also a primary goal of everything that happens at Assemble.  And yes, Jess was amazing, too!
