“Lost and Found”

From artisans, to makers, to a new generation of manufacturers, we’re examining the value of revitalizing the past, re-engaging with experiences fading into memory, and re-imagining once dying industries as vital engines of growth. We’re not just doing this for the sake of posterity — we need to properly chart the future

Wednesday, September 21


What can Pittsburgh (and cities like us) do to sustain relevance and notoriety nationally and globally as one of the premier destinations for people seeking great opportunities to make an impact, knowing the window to capitalize on our momentum may be short-lived? In the midst of this newly found attention, how do we answer critical questions about the future of Pittsburgh, most notably on the topics of culture, identity, and authenticity?

“The Ripple Effect”

Little things — the stuff we don’t notice, or perhaps take for granted can be applied, leveraged, or used in new ways which, in turn, lead to something big. Economics, finance, sociology, and science all refer to this as the “Ripple Effect”: a seemingly unnoticed act or action that expands upon itself incrementally and exponentially. What stories are out there that teach us that big things can sometimes come in small-looking packages? Or that building the “next big thing” may not require millions of dollars or celebrity endorsements — it may just come from the right combination of ideas, people, and circumstances.


Music is held at the Carrie Furnaces Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24

Check out the lineup including The Chainsmokers, Churches, Thievery Corporation, Metric, Ty Dolla $ign, Lettuce, and many more here.
