STEPPIN STANZAS Steppin Stanzas is a grassroots poetry project celebrating Pittsburgh public steps and the city’s heritage, diversity, and distinctive geography. Along with its three rivers, Pittsburgh’s hills and more than 800 public stairways are its most defining characteristics. Steppin Stanzas events take place on city steps to offer a new way for residents to experience the landscape of their neighborhood and bring art to a venue that few other cities can offer. Co-founders and resident artists Paola Corso, a poet and literary activist, and Andrew Edwards, a multi-lingual poet, launched Steppin Stanzas in 2016 by creating original poems inspired by city steps and performing them with belly dance artist Sahra DeRoy and guitarist Aaron LeFebvre along the South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association’s 16th Annual StepTrek route in Pittsburgh. They were awarded a Sprout Fund Seed Grant to launch the project. About Steppin Stanzas Launch at StepTrek 2016 About Steppin Stanzas at StepTrek 2017
