About REST Fest

🌎 XYZ Atlas 🌍

We ask Austinites where we feel sense of belonging. The past three  years we have focused our programing on empowering artists experiencing  chronic and transitory states of houselessness. Where do you belong when  you have a home but not a house? Asking this question blew our hearts  wide open and birthed our art block party, Draw Together. It moves  around town, as do our artists, from City Hall to across from the  Capital, to hotels, Camp Esperanza, and now to the ESB-Mexican American  Cultural Center.

💔 Yes, Austin has changed ❤️‍🩹

The only lasting truth is change. How do we continue to Draw Together through the change?

🙏 GIVE ✌️

We are raising $5,000 to be matched by a grant from the Better  Business Bureau to pay dignified salaries to artists transitioning  finding their home and sense of belonging to dream up, collaborate and  take the lead on Draw Together events in 2022. 100% goes directly to the  artists!

💙 The Freeze 🥶

People are still recovering physically and emotionally from the ice  apocalypse of 2021 and the next one in 2022 according to the farmer’s  almanac will be even worse. All we have is each other and we believe in  mutual solidarity. This isn’t charity. We are drawing together,  gathering warm clothes donations, and raising money to support our  artists who keep Austin alive with art!
