February Month in Review

1 Mar

Hello everyone! February just happened, as it usually does this time of year, and we grew and learned quite a bit. First, the highlight reel:

  • Yes, Ma’am! Feminist Discussion has been happening – and will continue to happen – at Sasona Coop at 8:00pm. The next class is March 26th. They’ve covered some great topics: weddings and marriage, animal rights, and sex workers. Come by next week!
  • Computer Programming is weathering oncoming storm of mid-terms. Stay tuned for specifics but we’re assembling a very interesting array of programmers young and old. (If you caught the pun, pat yourself on the back.) Drop by the 21st Street Co-op on Thursdays at 9:00pm and get your nerd on.
  • Fortune Telling is continuing at Spider House, predictably. 🙂 Mondays at 9:00pm, yo.
  • Documentary Tuesday no longer happens weekly but are hosted at Treasure City Thrift on the last Tuesday of the month.
  • Film Acting will be taking place March 18th
  • We promoted a fun but fledgling salsa class, and if you’re interested let us know!
  • We’re about to drop some changes to the website that you should be oh-so excited about.
  • Most importantly: we still need you to participate!

That’s quite a bit for volunteers with no budget! And it works because we have awesome people contributing their time and effort. Thank you volunteers!

We all benefit when we share ideas and knowledge, so stop by Tom’s Tabooley at 5pm on Sundays and meet with us. We want your ideas! Feed us your ideas!

Thanks for a Great Year!

Hey everyone, sorry if posts have been a bit minimal lately… We are in a bit of a transition period. Classes will be more regularly posted in the next few days and the calendar will be updated this Sunday!

We have some really amazing new workshops coming up for the fall. Including but not limited to:
Hoop Dance
Intro to Archives
Beginning Performance Art
Gwar Costume & Prop Making Class
Hip Hop: A Personal History

– We have finished reviewing our bylaws and will be submitting them this upcoming week.
– Currently we are trying to determine a space to start holding events on the south east side of Austin and seeking more organizations & collectives to partner with
– Planning a Fundraiser & Teacher Appreciation Event
– Setting up a Twitter
– Creating more media and creative ways of providing education to the greater Austin communities

Thanks so much for all of your support and hope this summer has been treating you exceptionally well. If you have any suggestions please let us know!!
