The Creative Industries Network is dedicated to the growth of Pittsburgh's specific creative technology-related capabilities. The network focuses on the region's seven core creative industries: design, fine arts, software/hardware, communications, entertainment, data science and industry support services.

MISSION   To foster, connect and sustain emergent intersections of creativity and industry.

PURPOSE  To serve as a collaborative hub that ignites creativity and innovation, enhances interconnectivity and provides opportunity for creative, cultural transformation. 

The Creative Industries Network originated in 2008, as the Art + Technology Initiative, to unite and cultivate the creative and technology communities in the Pittsburgh region, and beyond.  Founded on the idea that creativity and technology share the fundamental characteristic of innovation, as well as a synergy at the forefront of cultural progression, the network is a thriving community that feeds the region's creative and economic ecosystems.
