Pittsburgh's First Arts and Technology Festival Next April

Passports: The Art Diversity Project, that is, ARTica Gallery (5110 Penn) has just announced it will organize and promote a "Geek Arts and Green Innovators Festival" in April, 2010, titled GA/GI (pronounced GAHgee), which would make it Pittsburgh's very first arts and technology festival! This is so exciting for the city, and I have really high hopes for this to be a big event!

From Passports:
"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.
