In 2008, a kind of punk house appeared in Pittsburgh, based around literature instead of politics or music. Since then the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers' project has housed 36 writers from across the US and Canada, and has been the place of completion of eight books, countless comics, zines, poems, essays and articles. Cyberpunk Apocalypse has acted as home base for six reading tours and has hosted events ranging from book clubs and show-and-tells, as well as the Heinz-funded Writers' Showcase series: Advancing Reading as Performance.
 
Artists Image Resource (AIR) is an artist-run organization that integrates the production of fine art printwork with innovative educational programs that explore the creative process. AIR provides print and imaging services to professional artists and educators. Their goal is to maintain an active and vital imaging laboratory that supports artists and facilitates creative activity.
