You know how you open an email and open the newsletter and scan through it, then you click on a link, that takes you to an article that mentions something that seems interesting and you do a search and end up finding some really cool info?

That happened to me today. I ended up at the Dougherty Arts Center Website. I have passed by their building many times without ever wondering what goes on in there and boy am I happy I found their website!

As artists and performers, we are always looking for ways to stretch our money, heck, you don’t need to be an artist or a performer to want to save a buck! That’s why I’m sharing this tidbit of info in case you, like me, had not heard that the DAC now has a space where you can comfortably do your research (without the feeling you have to buy a coffee every hour to justify the use of the free wifi), meet with prospective clients or collaborators, or simply work in a comfortable place that is not your living room.

The Artist Resource Center at the Dougherty Arts Center provides with everything you may need to take care of the planning and production of your next project.

They have the basics: WiFi, charging stations and caffeine plus access to a resource library, TV with HDMI connection and even Adobe Suite. SWEET!

Best of all, you don’t need reservations, memberships or to succumb to the imaginary self-imposed pressure of buying something.

The space is open M-W 10 am to 10 pm and Saturdays 10 am to 2 pm.

For the dancers and actors in the bunch, the DAC also has rehearsal spaces available FOR FREE! For more info, send an email to DACInfo@austintexas.gov or contact the theater coordinator Lucy Miller-Downing at 512-974-4045

If you haven’t had the chance to check out the DAC, don’t waste another minute and hop onto their website or Facebook page. You’ll be amazed at all the other events, services and classes they have available!

Forklift Danceworks

Yesterday I had a dream-like experience at the Bartholomew Pool called “My Park, My Pool, My City“, here in Austin, Tx. I’ve heard about the outstanding/unusual pieces by Forklift Danceworks but unfortunately, I’ve never seen it in action until yesterday. MIND BLOWN!

They choreograph, integrate, and create an experience that gave me chills, and made me shear a tear or two; the way they expose the everyday art, the common hero, it’s so simple and gorgeous!

Music by our local genius, Graham Reynolds, choreography by Allison Orr & Krissie Marty, performances by the staff at Austin’s Parks & Recreation (PARD)/ Aquatics Program and the community.

Let this fun piece connect you to your community, inner child and humanity in general, your soul would truly appreciate it!

There are a few tickets left here, make sure you get them!

:* ❤
