We Are a Creativity Incubator


By the Community, For the Community

Studio Eight27 is Pittsburgh’s first and only creativity incubator. We’re inspired by the growing number of technology and small business incubators now found in Pittsburgh – a reflection of our city’s evolution from steel town to one of the nation’s epicenters of everything that’s new, now and next. The response to our city’s incubators is overwhelmingly positive, and incubators continue to generate many of Pittsburgh’s newest innovations.

Incubators serve a unique purpose: to provide a space where ideas can freely flourish, makers can collaborate, and new creations can take root.  We created Studio Eight27 as an answer to the growing need for a space where creatives living and working in Pittsburgh can do the same. Our incubator is here to help artists and makers grow their talents and break new creative ground.

Because creativity does not yield to boundaries, we collectively function at three levels: as a shared working space, an art gallery, and a movement studio.

First and foremost, Studio Eight27 is here for the community. Like creativity, our definition of community is broad: we span artists of all stripes, entrepreneurs, innovators, makers, and more. By its very definition, community does not happen alone. We provide an open, inviting space where creatives can work among each other. Our work space includes the basics – like cool desks, comfy chairs, room to move, and great coffee – while also providing the opportunity to share ideas, get feedback, and grow.

Because our goal is to give back to the community, membership to our shared working space includes a nominal membership fee, based on a sliding-scale. Fees support operating costs and are determined on individual member needs. Click below if you’re interesting in joining our shared working community. We’d love to help you grow.

Art Gallery


Forget the idea of a stuffy, intimidating collection that leaves you cold.

Art Gallery


Forget the idea of a stuffy, intimidating collection that leaves you cold.

 

The gallery space at Studio Eight27 is one that belongs to all artists. Whether you’re a painter, illustrator, dancer or poet, your work belongs here. Our job is to provide a space where you can showcase your creativity, and our gallery does just that.

We curate art and creativity showcases that are by the community and for the community. If you have work you’d like to show, a friend who is looking for space to reveal his or her latest creations, or a concept for a cutting-edge art installation, then we want to hear from you.

Studio Eight27 is committed to fostering creativity in and around the Allentown neighborhood of Pittsburgh. That commitment includes creativity in the realms of movement and physical expression. We stand firmly behind the benefits – physical, emotional, and spiritual – that movement provides. Our desire to bring greater health and wellness to the Allentown community inspired us to launch a movement space within Studio Eight27. We want to give the community a safe and welcoming space in which to freely stretch, explore and move.

We invite you to join us at our movement studio, where we provide donation-based community pop-up style yoga classes. Whether you’re an experienced yogi or have never stepped foot on the mat, we welcome you to practice with us. We provide certified yoga instructors from Pittsburgh’s diverse yoga community, who bring their talents and love for teaching to everyone who joins us. Click below for our upcoming schedule of classes, and sign up to say Om.

Who We Are

Who We Are


The team behind Studio Eight27 is one that is fully-versed in the language of risk.

 

We’re a collective of designers, writers, small business growers, brand strategists, and media mavens. Our work crosses boundaries and spurs audiences to do the same.

How we began: Studio Eight27 is brought to you by Fame15 Creative, a boutique, full-services, independent marketing and creative agency in Pittsburgh. We’ve been taking risks since we hit the ground running in 2015, and we haven’t looked back. At the start of 2017, we officially opened our offices at 827 E. Warrington Avenue, and have since been integrating our work and ourselves into the Allentown community. We’re proud to do what we love in a neighborhood that is individualistic and avant-garde. We’re inspired by the businesses in our neighborhood for their willingness to take risks, cultivate expression, share their voices, and sustain creativity. Through Studio Eight27, we endeavor to provide a space where risk taking is encouraged and artists are given the room to thrive.
