Programming that Empowers Economic Mobility & Community Engagement
The Warhol Academy’s programming includes single and multi-day training sessions for participants to learn from practicing professionals with experience in in-demand creative and technical skills as well as experts who teach the soft skills needed for learners to have a strong foundation to build up their professional development. We focus on empowering communities of people who are statistically underrepresented in the creative and technical industries including BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and women to be able to achieve their goals as job seekers, business owners, and change-makers here in the Pittsburgh region.
