artMEAT is a collective of interdisciplinary voices, creative initiatives, and diverse individuals. artMEAT facilitates the individual’s discovery and exploration of the creative self and the artistic tribe. artMEAT strives to strengthen the foundation of communities by fostering the collaboration of siloed individual artists, art enthusiasts, the creatively inclined, persons unexposed to the arts, and those with the slightest investment in creative exploits.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
