Center for Creativity

Established in 2016, the Center for Creativity (C4C) seeks to foster connections between and among members of the University community whose scholarly efforts and passions are rooted in “making stuff”: stories, pictures, music, scenes, statements, apps, messes, etc.  

The C4C Workshop, located in the University Store on Fifth, is a collaborative creative space open to all Pitt students, faculty, and staff. The Workshop features a wide range of creative equipment and materials, from musical instruments to art supplies to a 3D printer, all free to use.
