About this Study

This study, which was conducted by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, represents a 7-month effort to better understand the current conditions of Pittsburgh’s creative learning ecosystem. By a learning ecosystem, we mean the organizations, individuals, and places that create, participate in, and fuel creative learning experiences. In order to gain a picture of the current ecosystem, we held focus groups with leaders in the creative learning community, distributed two regional surveys (one for educators and one for organizational leaders), and conducted multiple interviews with The Heinz Endowments program officers.
