An Open House This Weekend ~ Get the Tour!
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29th, noon ’til 5
2608B Rogers Ave. 78722
This Open House is especially for the Austin Time Exchange Network — members and new members. (We’ll do an orientation to ATEN at 4:00, so you can join up!)
I have long been dreaming of having bustling Work Days with all sorts of people using this space around the duplex I live in as a laboratory of creative exploration, documentation, and transformation. There’s just so much to do! It is a place of freedom as well as challenges, somewhere you can hang out until you find inspiration.
So, what is it again? Well, I have a hard time choosing one explanation. It’s a collection spot for certain kinds of “junk”. There’s a studio, a puppet stage area, a yard, a sweet dog, and lots of cats. The cats are semi-wild, as is the studio.
Some activities that take place here (past, present, future) include: stencil art, scrap wood construction, bottle-building, tinkering to invent, sign-making, garden-starting, mural-painting, stuff-swapping, wig-making, lamp-shade designing, quiet contemplation, cat observation, shade-structure inventing, botanical and other environmental studies, drawing 101, and videos galore.
What I really want to see is: different people learning and teaching, individuals transforming found materials, and video/photo crews documenting change.
Looking for collaborators of all skill levels who want to be part of the Odd Saturdays team!
And if you join the Austin Time Exchange, I can “pay” you in Hours.
Well, I guess I took the rest of the summer off from blogging. Oops! There’s a lot to catch up on. And some reorganization of things (but I’ll stick with this theme).
For now, please enjoy the murky-bright colors of this TIMELY flier (made by Chad and me)…
