Community and Outreach

Assemble is a space to generate and share ideas. To that end, we welcome people who know things and people who want to know things into our community. Technologists, makers, artists of all mediums, adults, children, writers, photographers, videographers, scientists, engineers, and many more have all featured their work at Assemble events. Whether it’s a workshop for kids on how solar panels work, or an exhibition using modern technology to recreate the experience of a local farm in our space, Assemble is dedicated to sharing more ideas with more people.

So stop by some time and hang out with us. We’re looking forward to seeing what ideas you bring with you.

And while Garfield is our home, we love to visit our friends! Assemble has conducted interactive workshops for programs like Gwen’s Girls, The Hill House Association, the Neighborhood Learning Alliance, and many more. If you would like us to host a workshop for you, contact us for more information.


Our location at 4824 Penn Avenue puts us right in the middle of Pittsburgh’s Friendship, Garfield, and Bloomfield neighborhoods. Assemble is proud to connect the children in our neighborhood with fun events and workshops to help kindle their interest in science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

Assemble also participates in Penn Avenue’s First Friday Unblurred gallery crawl by unveiling an exhibition by a different Pittsburgh artist, technologist, or maker. Everyone is welcome, and we provide snacks and drinks while you participate in an interactive activity.

We are committed to the improvement of our neighborhood, and to the improvement of our city.
