Presented by Ashé Arts Austin at AISD Performing Arts Center

Melanated Chrysalis reframes the metamorphosis of the caterpillar in the context of one person’s journey. Being a caterpillar is only the beginning. It’s time to break out of the chrysalis that existed only to make you stronger. You are ready. Evolution requires death, but leaves you with grace.

ARTS WELLNESS WORKSHOPS (April 15-18) encourage courageous insistence through art. Donation-based workshops highlight health/wellness in the context of the arts. Local artists of different mediums will provide daily practices to promote self-healing for individuals and groups. REGISTER FREE

MELANATED CHRYSALIS x MELANATED MARKETPLACE (April 20th) is the story of one person’s experience inside the cocoon — encouraging others to be comfortable in their discomfort during metamorphosis. Come celebrate transformation with us as we embrace the culture Austin was built upon, and preserve it in the midst of Austin’s own metamorphosis. One night only! TICKETS
