WHAT IS BROAD STUDIOS?
Broad Studios is a multidisciplinary female art collective with six resident artists located at Springdale General in Austin, TX. Together, we make art, host events, and teach workshops that aim to promote creative education and connection in our community.
WHO ARE WE?
Together, we are a team of six women entrepreneurs who make ceramics, paintings, botanically dyed silks, fiber art and jewelry. We each balance the act of running a one-woman-show for our own creative businesses in addition to being part of a team for the programming of Broad Studios. Find out more about us as individuals here.
WHERE ARE WE?
Broad Studios is located at the intersection of Springdale Road and Airport Blvd at a complex called Springdale General in East Austin. We share the street with a number of well-known businesses including Austin Bouldering Project, Austin Eastciders Collaboratory, Daily Greens, Friends & Allies Brewing Co. and our sister complex, Canopy.
Springdale General is a 10 acre property filled with small businesses, makers and cafés all unique to Austin. When construction is complete this fall 2018, Broad Studios will be adjacent to one of Austin's most well-known coffee spots, Café Medici.
WHAT IS OUR MISSION?
While Broad Studios is primarily a fully functional studio/workspace for our 6 resident artists, we open our doors for workshops and events primarily on the weekends. We work to fill our calendar year-round with classes taught by Broad Studios' own as well as visiting teachers from Austin and beyond. Learn everything from ceramics to painting, natural dyeing, weaving, jewelry-making, and more.
We also host events and panel discussions that highlight other small business owners in our area and offer resources to those who may be interested in starting their own. Aspiring entrepreneurs often have questions or hangups that can be solved right here in our own community, so we hope to provide a space for those ideas to spread. Everyone on the Broad Studios team has either been a speaker or an attendee on a creative panel and we can unanimously agree that it's an invaluable resource that we are excited to offer.
EAST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR
Big Medium's East Austin Studio Tour (EAST) is a free, annual, self-guided art event spanning two weekends in November. EAST provides opportunities for the public to meet the artists and artisans of Austin in their creative spaces. With thousands of attendees from all over the world, EAST will open to the public this November 10-11 & 17-18, 2018 from 11am-6pm and Broad Studios will join the tour as a collective for our first time! This will be one of the biggest events of our calendar year and we hope you can join us.
