The Ujamaa Collective is a non-profit organization of women of African descent who are entrepreneurs, artisans, artists and individuals who are committed to serving their community through leadership. Through Ujamaa, artisans will have an economic outlet for their work, micro-enterprises will have the support to grow, customers will gain access to locally-produced items, and Pittsburgh will have a regional destination to draw customers and visitors to the Historic Hill District.


Arts & Cooperative Business Program for Young Women starts in March

Ujamaa is looking for 10 young women between ages 15-21 for a hands-on, experiential arts and entrepreneurship program in our Hill District boutique. Thanks to a grant from The Heinz Endowment's Transformative Arts Program, Ujamaa has retained a resident teaching artist for our program, Ujamaa's very own member Dawn Surgest. As a professional fashion designer, Dawn will prepare participants with skills in textile design and sewing, with the opportunity for launching their own brands within a supportive, cooperative setting. 

We are all truly excited about this program and look forward to the consistent youth engagement and await to see all of the creations we know our young sisters are capable of!
