*Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts (PIFOF), a project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, is a city-wide, 16-day performing and visual arts festival featuring exclusive US and World premieres by highly-acclaimed international artists and contemporary performing arts companies. Festival events are presented in association with other Pittsburgh cultural organizations and offer intimate experiences for audiences at various traditional and non-traditional performance venues within the downtown Cultural District and throughout the city. **All locations are wheelchair accessible unless otherwise noted.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh's most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country's largest land masses "curated" by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh's quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Cultural Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts.
