WHO WE ARE
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 founded in 2002. Our goal is empower, support and educate emerging artists of all ages to be active participants in shaping our culture and 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 do 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 coworking makerspace venue for artists + creatives.
WHY IT MATTERS
The main barrier we have seen with Austin’s sustainability is affordability. Generations of communities and families are being barred from reaching their potential due to socioeconomic disadvantages. One of our most important objectives as an organization is not to only serve those who are active in the arts but for those who have yet to be, by creating unique programming for the community.
We serve 25,000+ people year-round and 67% require financial assistance to access education, resources and to build successful futures. Your support plays a vital role in continuing our mission to pave the way for future generations.
TOGETHER, WE CAN CONTINUE TO PROVIDE ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION & A growing COMMUNITY SPACE FOR TEXAS.
