We strongly believe that art is the connective tissue across cultures, borders, and human-made divisions and is the creative power for the good. Our personal experiences as immigrant women are the driving force behind our mission.


… is to connect people through art

We provide a meeting place for diverse communities to experience art together. We create opportunities for local Austin area artists to connect with artists from around the world.

We look for and create connections between different art fields and seek to collaborate with groups devoted to promoting film, music, visual arts, and healthy living to the community.


We are cross-disciplinary – our organization promotes artists working in all media. We invite the community to experience visual arts, music, and film.

We are community-focused – our programs partner with groups and other art organizations that value diversity and inclusion.

We are artists-centered – we invite artists to collaborate and share ideas.

We are hard at work on our current project, a mural inspired by the life and art of Tamara de Lempicka, one of the greatest artists of the 20th century and an icon of the Art Deco style. 

A lifetime émigré, like the heroines of our previous project, Lempicka left behind what was familiar to her and conquered the world with her talent, art, and personality.

We need your help to make this happen!

To complete the mural we need to raise funds.  Our project gained the interest and support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland. We need Austin’s community to support it too. 

We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization so your donation is tax-deductible.

We need your help to connect the dots!

Our love affair with film goes back quite a while. The interplay of images, music, and language has a strong power of expression. We want to introduce filmmakers to the Austin community and share films that bring food for thought, entertain, and get us all talk to each other.

Each corner of the world has its own way to communicate through images – we want to bring to Austin artwork that moves us, present the creators of paintings, posters, sculptures, and let their work speak for itself.

Speaking of connections – what can communicate purely without the constraints of a language better that music? We want to present musicians and their work from Austin and the world, bring them together and bring the community to hear them.
