Let’s kick off FALL 2019 with a meet-up & hang!
As always, this event is free, open to the public, and open to all ages!
We're reflecting on all the amazing films & media work our students and members have created throughout our 20 year history as an organization, media arts center, and film school in East Austin. We're thinking about all the new films, work, students, and members that will get their chance to shine in this fall!
With a full time staff, 25+ artist interns, 100 teachers, 300+ members and thousands of people attending events, classes, and workshops each year at our non-profit ~ LET'S CELEBRATE but more importantly ~ let's meet!
If you’re curious on who we are, what we do, and how you can enroll in programs at our nonprofit, this quarterly meet-up is a chance to meet staff, faculty, and fellow students & members!
As always, we’ll have complimentary drinks & bites, a raffle, and feature digital installations of our amazing students work!
COMMUNITY PARTNERS & SPONSORSHIP: tba :)
WHO WE ARE
Our space inhabits 14,000 square feet of a repurposed industrial warehouse in East Austin providing a creative community hub as well as crucial resources for people of all ages in central Texas. We provide alternative education, resources, tools and a safe creative space for everyone to learn, work and create.
Motion Media Arts Center is a 501c(3) non-profit independent film, art, and technology center that supports every aspect of production from creation to presentation. Located in East Austin and founded in 2002 by a collective of artists + educators, our goal is empower, support and educate emerging artists of all ages to become active participants in shaping our culture, and to engage communities to rethink the way we view film, art and technology. We provide alternative ways to work, learn, create, and consume the arts in the digital era.
We accomplish this through our programs Austin School of Film (providing over 500 classes year-round in art, film and creative technology) and Austin Cinemaker Space— Austin's only non-profit, low-cost, co-working makerspace for artists and creatives.
WHY IT MATTERS
We are dedicated to the belief that involvement in the arts can (and should) be financially accessible, both in and outside of the classroom. MMAC serves 25,000+ people year-round and 67% require financial assistance to access education, resources, and the creative space to build successful nows & futures. Our #1 objective is to continue to help pave pathways for future generations to work, learn and create.
