What is Almost Real Things?

Austin’s pocket magazine for creative explorers and the community partners who empower them.

Almost Real Things stands for ART. In 2015 we moved to a new city where we didn’t know anyone. The things we were making were left unseen and we needed to connect with other people. Our solution? Almost Real Things: a pocket magazine to inspire, create and collaborate without limits.

What started as a passion project is now a thriving community. Beyond each magazine and event, Almost Real Things is an opportunity for everyone to be creative because everyone has something to share.
