KEEP AUSTIN CREATING is an ongoing event series produced by arts non-profit Motion Media Arts Center and is dedicated to giving a platform & space for all creatives & makers to meet face-to-face and get to know their arts community. Each event showcases artists, businesses and organizations who actively help shape ATX arts.
MMAC will transform our 12,000 square feet of our creative hub into a beautiful creative space filled with local makers + arts organizations. We believe a vibrant community is an empowered community. A twist on traditional markets, this event features everything from artist pop-ups vending locally created goods, art and wares to organizations that inspire our communities by promoting accessibility and inclusion within the arts. Art lovers & advocates of all ages, come join in on the celebration!
Our market is free to attend, open to the public and family friendly.
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 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 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 for artists and creatives.
WHY IT MATTERS: We serve 25,000+ people year-round and 67% require financial assistance to access education, resources, 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.
We are a dedicated to the belief that the arts can be--and is--a financially accessible both in and outside of the classroom. To learn more about our non-profit and ways you can help, visit our home website.
