TAP fun at the East Side Fair

This past Saturday, Theatre Action Project proudly participated in the first annual District Day and East Side Fair in East Austin.

Local artists and entrepreneurs were showcased at various sites around Central East Austin, along with performers, speakers, and activities for children.

This event is a grassroots effort to facilitate and advance discussions regarding the development of East Austin, with and among the people who live there. While increasing awareness of the Central East Austin as a Cultural Heritage District, the East Austin Fair also aims to bring attention to local business people and service providers.

TAP participated in the children’s activity area and led two activities, Asante Adinkra Stamping and Guro Animal Masks. Both activities come out of West Africa and have both spiritual and entertainment value.
