We are dedicated to bringing out the soul of grassroots culture in the city of bridges and helping build a community interconnected with the elements beneath the surface. Our goal is to promote collective creativity through a fluid intersection of people, places, ideas and vibrations. In doing so, we seek to connect independent arts and culture to the urban development of Pittsburgh and unlock the potential energy through the poetry of people in motion....

new   Nov 25th, 2003 Update   We're back online after a long timeout.  The element 5 collective has been very busy as of late. But the sweat transforms into reward as we gear up to put on the most extravagent of our events,  Red Hot + Momentum, a benefit for the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force in commemoration of World AIDS Day. It's absolutely marvelous how the community at large has rallied around this cause. As such, we anticipate our next Momentum to be a real foot stomping show stopper. So come on out and support a worthy cause - all proceeds benefit the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force and their AIDS awareness and prevention programs.  Click on the image link above for more info on Red Hot + Momentum, and if you can, help spread the word. Together we can deliver a much needed holiday present to those on the front lines of the battle against HIV and AIDS. On separate but upbeat note, this website is finally about to be updated and will be back in full swing within the soon. Our apologies for the delayed updates (and bouncing mailboxes). Some personnel changes among our web hacks (Best of luck T.I. & A.J.) and the chaos of organizing another big event have slowed things down online. We thank you for your patience and for your continued feedback. Your collective suggestions are fabulous and it's your feedback that drives us to keep element 5 as an ad-free cultural information hub by and for the community. So, Please feel free to drop us a message anytime - element5ive@yahoo.com.  And as always, keep your good vibes strong!
