What is Urban Matters?
Urban Matters is an Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) arts and education program rooted in social justice. Its primary goal is to cultivate a more civically educated and engaged group of young people in Pittsburgh's most distressed and predominately African-American communities.
Urban Matters participants use research, interviews and art to create tools to help (1) demystify urban policies and (2) increase participation in decision-making processes that impact and shape their communities.
