Everything begins with a conversation and SIX x ATE exists to start them. Now entering its fifth season in 2016, this series of food, art, and lecture continues to create a more diverse conversation and stronger creative community in Pittsburgh. For each event, the audience is invited to sit and enjoy five-minute presentations from six artists and a meal from one or several cuisiniers. All of the work presented or performed responds to the theme of the night (scroll through previous years below to get a sense of past themes). There are no formal Q & A’s or long-winded introductions, so guests spend most of the evening talking informally while eating and drinking. This relaxed environment encourages real connections, spurring future collaborations and forging new friendships. Audience members include creative professionals, local artists, foodies, and everybody else in between. As this project progresses each year, I’m grateful to all of the participants, hosts, and volunteers. This is a labor of love for the city that raised me.
