Women & Their Work Presents Everything You Ever by Tammie Rubin

Be apart of the opening reception of Everything You Ever featuring new work by Tammie Rubin. The wispy tendrils of the native Texas ball moss serves as a signifier of gathering chaos, conclave connections, concentrated confusion, a labyrinth of values, and growing will. Sculptures are constructed of knots and tangles of twine and rope, embedded with steel wool and cotton, and armatures of wire. These forms are then overwhelmed with porcelain slip, covering, drowning, distorting and obscuring the original. What will be lost? What will remain?

AFF Presents: Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin

Austin Film Festival presents Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin

Saturday, October 27 | 1:00pm | Hideout Theatre
(USA, 64 mins)

Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin is a feature documentary that explores the remarkable life and legacy of the science fiction and fantasy writer Ursula K. Le Guin, who passed away in 2018. Produced with Le Guin’s participation over the course of a decade, the film is a journey through the writer's inimitable career and her worlds, both real and fantastic. Le Guin exploded onto the literary scene in the late 1960s, elevating science fiction to new levels of sophistication and artistry with works such as A Wizard of Earthsea and The Left Hand of Darkness. Le Guin defiantly held her ground on the margin of American letters until the sheer excellence of her work finally forced the mainstream to embrace fantastic literature. Viewers will accompany the writer on an intimate journey of self-discovery as she comes into her own as a major feminist author, opening new doors for the imagination and inspiring generations of women and other marginalized writers along the way.

East Austin Bookclub

Screen Shot 2018-09-17 at 1.56.45 PM - danielle lail.png

The East Austin Bookclub holds a monthly book discussion featuring books written by women every third Monday of the month.

October’s book is Wayétu Moore's "She Would be King." She Would Be King, reimagines the dramatic story of Liberia’s early years through three unforgettable characters who share an uncommon bond. Gbessa, exiled from the West African village of Lai, is starved, bitten by a viper, and left for dead, but still she survives. June Dey, raised on a plantation in Virginia, hides his unusual strength until a confrontation with the overseer forces him to flee. Norman Aragon, the child of a white British colonizer and a Maroon slave from Jamaica, can fade from sight at will, just as his mother could. When the three meet in the settlement of Monrovia, their gifts help them salvage the tense relationship between the African American settlers and the indigenous tribes, as a new nation forms around them.

Color Arc Productions presents its first Work-In-Progress Concert Reading of ROMEO & KATRINA, a new American musical set during New Orleans' recovery from Hurricane Katrina. ROMEO & KATRINA is a love story that explores our connections with home, family, and community. It asks whether we are more alike than we are different. 

Romeo Tran and Katrina "Trina" Batiste live on different sides of the Mississippi River. Romeo is a blue-collar Vietnamese American mechanic from Westbank New Orleans. Trina is a “bougie” pre-med college student from an affluent black family in Eastbank New Orleans. As Romeo & Katrina’s relationship grows, so too does the New Orleans Saints as they ascend to win their first-ever Super Bowl Championship in NFL history. 

ROMEO & KATRINA was conceived by Christine Hoang, a Vietnamese American playwright/screenwriter who was born and raised in the blue collar suburbs of Westbank New Orleans.

Main Logo Color - Alex Perez-Puelles.png

Techstars Startup Weekend is the best place to learn how to build a startup in a weekend and connect with your community; a melting pot of the area’s most creative thinkers, builders and implementers. It’s a 3-day long sprint to launch new products and services that solve real-world problems.

Techstars & Google recognize that veterans make exceptional founders and employees. Their resourcefulness and ability to execute is unparalleled. Many veterans have gone through Techstars accelerators and successfully exited. In fact, Patriot Bootcamp was born because their founders are both Techstars alumni and veterans. Techstars now has 2 accelerators focused on defense, one in Boston & one in Adelaid. This Startup Weekend exists because Google & Techstars believe in the military community and want to create access to the startup ecosystem.
