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.
I met a new Austin Time Exchange buddy today and cleared some paths in her living labyrinth! Wow, it is amazing. Smells so good, like lemon trees, geraniums, roses, and life.
You’ll have to check her out (Mary Kraemer – Rosa Milagrosa) during E.A.S.T. in 2 weeks!
Also, for those in Austin, TOMORROW -and every 2nd Sunday- there is a social orientation to ATEN (Austin Time Exchange Network) with potluck to follow! If you want to get involved and start trading work hours with other Austinites, come out to Soma Vida (on Rosewood) at 5pm!
And speaking of E.A.S.T., definitely keep an eye on the Co-Lab schedule, for there is going to be a very special week of Happenings there. >heart<
