KEEP AUSTIN CREATING is an event series produced by non-profit Motion Media Arts Center (MMAC) dedicated to providing a space for local artists to meet face-to-face and get to know their community, as we feel it is vital to support accessibility within the arts and give a platform to all creatives. Each event showcases artists, businesses and organizations who actively contribute to the culture of ATX arts.

KEEP AUSTIN CREATING: Holiday Market is always free to attend, open to the public, and family friendly!


MMAC inhabits 20,000 square feet of a repurposed industrial warehouse in East Austin— a veritable creative community hub for a beautifully diverse tribe of local artists, brought together and united by the belief that even traditionally “elite” resources can (and should!) be financially accessible for all



We open doors for artists of all ages— not only those already involved in the arts, but also anyone whose dreams might otherwise seem out of reach. We offer alternative education, amazing resources, and a truly safe space for you to learn/work/create!



We provide alternative ways to learn, work, create, & consume the arts in this digital era.

Motion Media Arts Center is a 501c(3) non-profit center for independent film, art, and technology that supports every aspect of production from ideation to presentation.

Our goal is to educate, support, & empower emerging artists of all ages as active participants shaping our culture, by engaging communities to rethink the way we view the arts as a whole.

Programs include: Austin School of Film and Austin Cinemaker Space.
