The Austin Poetry Slam is dedicated to honoring the Austin community by providing and promoting poetry and its performance in a manner that engages, challenges, celebrates, and supports both artist and audience. Takes place in the Spiderhouse Ballroom every Tuesday night.
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.
