losing weird

a new documentary project telling stories of

Austin's artists and creatives


With the explosion of growth many artists are unable to find reasonably priced studios and spaces. There are few affordable areas left in Austin, and for some, the answer is to migrate out of town. Our documentary series, Losing Weird, showcases individual stories from local artists, their exit from Austin and the ripple effect on our community.
