For 15 years City of Asylum has been protecting, celebrating, and building on creative free expression.
We protect by providing sanctuary to endangered literary writers, so they can continue to write. We celebrate by presenting free, globally-focused literary and performing arts programs. We build and inclusive community that is a model for the world.
City of Asylum is now the largest writer sanctuary program in the world. And we are also presenting one of the largest calendars of cultural events in Pittsburgh - over 170 events in 2019 - all free to the community.
As a grassroots organization, we depend on the support of individuals like you. Your generous contributions help City of Asylum to meet its commitments to exiled writers. They also help us keep our program of events free, so that everyone has equal access to great cultural programming.
