Inspire Speaker Series Featuring Celeste C. Smith

  • Essie H. Hillman Auditorium 1825 Centre Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15219 United States (map)

Hosted by Green Building Alliance, The Inspire Speaker Series is described as such: "Storytelling is our way of expressing the soul of our community to one another. Stories expose our beliefs, emotions and vulnerabilities that can connect with people in ways that facts and statistics can’t. Stories foster empathy, remind us of what it means to be human, and challenge us to be the change we seek.

Join us for our second annual Storytelling Inspire Speakers Series event to hear stories from citizens who are working to create sustainable, vibrant, healthy, and just places for us all to live, work, learn, and play."


The evening’s theme is “Loving Your Place.” This Moth-style and TED-like event will dare us to dream big about what is possible for our communities, projects, and places. Our presenters are creating places that help our communities thrive, make us healthier and more vibrant, and are designed for everyone, and we’re delighted for the opportunity to hear from them. Come be inspired by the amazing work that Pittsburgh citizens are doing to make this community a place we can all love.
