SkatePlus is a non-profit project of Shred Your Fears with a mission of promoting health, creativity, and education through skateboarding.
We held our first workshop (Skate+Write) in December 2019 in partnership with Write Pittsburgh and Switch & Signal Skatepark. This event for female-identifying and non-binary teens ages 11-14 combined learning to skateboard with a creative writing workshop led by Shred Your Fears Founder Maya Haptas.
We are launching our next event Skate+Construct in Spring 2021. For Skate+Construct, artist Abe Dubin (Orange Man) will be constructing unique, skateable art from items collected during a community clean-up.
