We serve the greater arts community by providing resources and opportunities for artists, musicians, and performers to share their talents and expertise with the public.
Our community programs promote broader community engagement in the arts, while also actively supporting individuals who are pursuing the arts as a career. Our aim is to provide arts-related opportunities and resources that are economically and professionally beneficial to artists, musicians, performers, and arts educators.
Austin Arts Fair
Austin Arts Fair is an initiative to celebrate and support the artists, musicians, and performers who contribute so much to the distinct and vibrant culture of our city. It is an opportunity for local artists to share their passion and sell their work with children, families, and the greater Austin community. The event encourages broader community engagement in the arts through free arts activities, demos, workshops, and performances throughout the day. This celebration is free and open to the public, and any proceeds help support free arts and music programming for children and families in Austin’s underserved communities.
Austin Arts Fair is held biannually in the the Spring and Fall. To learn more and participate as an artist, performer, or sponsor, visit the link below.
Artist Relief Project
The Artist Relief Project is an initiative to provide financial support to artists, musicians, and performers who have been impacted by the repercussions of the COVID-19 crisis. With extensive venue closures and events cancellations across the nation, the music and arts communities are facing the stark realities of unexpected income loss and a livelihood in crisis. This project supports impacted artists by providing relief in two ways: (1) in the short term in the form of a one-time, emergency cash relief stipend of $200 and (2) in the long term in the form of programs and resources to empower them with the knowledge and support systems needed to adapt to post-COVID economic realities.
