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

Ideas become real once they are shared. As two post-graduate artists, we needed an outlet and audience for our work. We created Almost Real Things, acronym: “ART”, as a catalyst for creators like us to collaborate, share, and inspire without limits.

Founded in 2015, we provide a free space for artists, musicians, writers, designers, performers, and startups, to showcase their ART, giving them valuable opportunities to progress, eventually leading to financially stable careers that they love.
