ABOUT THE EVENT SERIES:
Keep Austin Creating is an ongoing event series produced by non-profit MMAC and dedicated to giving a platform & space for all creatives to meet face-to-face and get to know their arts community. Each event showcases artists, businesses and organizations who actively help shape ATX arts.

We are an independent film, art, and technology center that supports every aspect of production from creation to presentation.

We provide alternative ways to work, learn, create, and consume the arts in the digital era.
Our programs include Austin School of Film and Austin Cinemaker Space.
Our space inhabits 20,000 square feet of a repurposed industrial warehouse in East Austin providing a creative community hub and resource for people of all ages in Central, Texas. Not only those actively aware of the arts but those who are interested or yet to be. Opening doors for all ages, making it a financially viable option.
