Global Beats - Pittsburgh
 One world. One Beat.

Join us at the Global Switchboard Launch Party to help us introduce The Global Switchboard to the wider public - their neighbors in Lawrenceville, international and immigrant communities, other nonprofits and globally-minded organizations, and to the Pittsburgh community as a whole. The launch party will feature live music by GLOBAL BEATS, food, beer, and a global marketplace featuring local vendors.

The Global Switchboard is a co-working space for globally-minded organizations and individuals. It is Pittsburgh's home for global engagement, a way to bring new resources to the city, and a space to cultivate new and innovative global ideas.

Private reception and free outdoor event

Our event will start with a private reception at 4pm at The Global Switchboard office with refreshments, a meet and greet with members of The Global Switchboard, and an international art exhibition featuring local artists. This event will be ticketed to raise funds for the Global Switchboard.

At 6pm, a free outdoor event will begin with live performances, food, music and a global marketplace!

Also, I have accepted the position of International Music Director at WRCT 88.3 FM in 2014. Please email me suggestions for world music or just say hi at

One world.  One beat.
