Diversity & Inclusion Statement

Pittsburgh Center for Arts and Media (PCAM) is committed to promoting equity, respecting and honoring differences and embracing a broad spectrum of philosophies and life experiences. PCAM works to assure a welcoming environment for all board members, artists, members, staff, faculty, students, visitors, and vendors, regardless of age, class, gender, ethnicity, mental/physical ability, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

Strategic Plan

In 2022, we polled students and teachers, and met with community stakeholders to envision a plan to boost the state of PCA&M’s finances, inclusivity, communications, and overall organization. Presented here is the resulting Strategic Plan — a look at where we’ve been, and a guideline for organization’s growth through 2025.
