Muntu: Reflections in East Austin

Download the Muntu flyer here.

This multimedia exhibit offers the entire Austin community a time and space for shared reflection on this and related questions, for conversations of all kinds, in diverse media. There will be 3 different events happening this month, both of which will be happening at Space 12, so please join us for one or all of them if you can. The events are:

1. Opening Reception

A satellite event of Austin Earth Day which will include DJing, an Art Installation by Rama Tiru, and a one-woman play written and directed by Natalie Goodnow.

2. City Council Candidates’ Forum
Thursday, April 23rd, 6pm – 8pm

With the overarching purpose of Muntu being about what is happening to the trees and people of East Austin amidst the city’s changing cultural and geographical landscape, we will be having questions for city council and mayoral candidates regarding community concerns.

3. Open Albums
Saturday, April 25th, 10am -12pm

The first of a series of free monthly breakfasts to share photographs and stories from growing up in East Austin. Join us as we listen and see the stories from those who grew up on the East Side. If you have a neighbor who grew up on the East Side of Austin, please invite them to bring a photo and join us for this beautiful event.
