Event description
We'll Explore the Trail and share stories about the vibrant history of cultural production through art, recreation and economic empowerment.

About this Event

Join EastLink neighbors for a few hours of story sharing along the Trail. Meet the artists, athletes and local business owners that have shaped our communities and share your own stories of the places and spaces that define our lived experience in East Austin.  

We'll make a few stops along the Trail starting at Austin Studios Creative Media Center, part of the Austin Film Society, located at the intersection of Tilley Street and 51st. Join us for coffee and pastries with AFS’ CEO Rebecca Campbell, followed by a walkthrough of the soon-to-be- completed facility.

Then continue south down the Trail--the ride finishes with a shared meal in Rosewood Park.
