A Note About RADical Days 2020

As with everything in 2020, RADical Days looks a little different this year.

In order to provide the most opportunity while also following health and safety guidelines, most of our RADical Days events are virtual, with a sprinkling of free, in-person events that can be done safely. We know these past few months have been difficult and we are especially grateful to you - Allegheny County taxpayers - whose support has been critical to our regional assets in these trying times. They have been hard at work reimagining and crafting new ways to engage with you and we are delighted at their creativity and innovation.

Now more than ever, we all need the connection that comes from art, culture, and community. While it may look and feel a little different this year, we are making lemonade out of lemons and we hope you'll join us for RADical Days Fall 2020 with a spirit of adventure and generosity. We are all in this together.
