ReImagine the Monroeville Mall Showcase
Time & Location
About the Event
In April 2021, ReImagine Turtle Creek Watershed and Airshed Communities (TCWAC) hosted an essay contest asking high schoolers to share their ideas on how they would make the Monroeville Mall more economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable and inclusive of youth. A panel of judges, consisting of community leaders ranging from a Gateway School District Board Member to University of Pittsburgh Urban Studies Professors, chose three winning essays to receive cash prizes adding up to $1000. This contest builds upon a ReImagine TCWAC initiative that aims to revitalize the mall into a community hub for sustainability and innovation.
To celebrate our talented and inspiring essayists, TCWAC is holding ReImagine the Monroeville Mall Showcase this July for winners of the contest to read their submissions to the community. This event will create space for Monroeville residents to think about how the mall is a vital economic asset in our region. How can we, as a community of mall patrons, ensure that this asset is sustained?
The event will include several speakers, refreshments, and community members. We will follow all CDC guidelines for outdoor events.
The Mall is accessible with 67 and P68 bus lines.
The event will take place in the upper-level Macy's parking lot (between Macy's and the District).
Plant-based dinner is free to attendees!
Tabling orgs include: Gen Z Visionary Collective and Sunrise Movement Pgh.
