The work of End Street Harassment PGH, a research and creative advocacy project that is a collaboration of researchers and students from Point Park University and community organizations, will be highlighted this spring at Assemble, a nonprofit organization and community space for arts and technology education in Pittsburgh.

Creating awareness around unwanted street harassment is the focus of End Street Harassment PGH, and its efforts will be featured as the artist of the month in April at Assemble, 4824 Penn Ave. An opening event for the exhibit, “Not A Compliment,” will be held at Assemble on Friday, April 5, 69 p.m. Programming will include art activities, performances of a Chalk Out and access to the art exhibit.

"We are thrilled to be able to take our message and mission to the Bloomfield and surrounding neighborhoods of Pittsburgh," said Britney G. Brinkman, Ph.D. associate professor of psychology at Point Park University and a founding member of End Street Harassment PGH. "The exhibit aims to break down barriers to talk about street harassment, empower people to reframe conversations, and to create a welcome and safe place for all members of our community."

In addition to Point Park students and faculty, the End Street Harassment PGH team includes YOUniversal Education Services LLC and Virtual Homey LLC. The project is made possible through generous funding from the FISA Foundation.
