The Center for Creativity is a collaborative effort between The Allegheny Intermediate Unit and Intermediate Unit 1 (serving Washington, Greene and Fayette Counties). The initiative, generously funded by The Benedum Foundation grew out of the Intermediate Units’ involvement in the burgeoning movement in the Pittsburgh region around Kids + Creativity where area organizations involved in both formal and informal education (like The Idea Foundry, CMU’s Robotics Institute, Allegheny County Libraries and The Pittsburgh Technology Council) are joining forces in collaborative projects and the promotion of the Pittsburgh region as the best area in which to raise children.
