TALKPGH was initiative of the City of Pittsburgh's Department of City Planning in 2012, designed to engage neighbors in shaping the future of the city, informing the City’s comprehensive plan and its art and design sections. 

During a three week period, a transparent truck served as a mobile talk show set, visiting each of the city's 90 neighborhoods, interviewing 267 residents about their opinions, histories, and aspirations for their neighborhoods. 

Viewing is easy! See a Youtube playlist of all the video interviews.  From there you can click, watch, share, and comment as you wish.
