TO ALL THE AUSTINITES! Draw Together is a celebration and creative toolkit serving neighbors experiencing homelessness.

We are looking for fun and caring people to join us at the Old Bakery & Emporium to flip pancakes, color, listen to live music, and hang out with rad people!

We are excited to commission artists from Art From the Streets for future drawings! Special thanks to TownLake YMCA, Front Steps, and Ending Community Homelessness Coalition (ECHO) for spreading the word!

Fisterra utilizes art to inspire and revitalize people and communities.

As a cultural partner for creativity and engagement, Fisterra collaborates with experts, community organizations and individuals with art as a framework for activation.

We believe that art can inspire people to greater trust, satisfaction, and prosperity through connectedness to their community, place, and purpose.

Draw together was launched in 2016 by our founder Jennifer Chenoweth.

As we sat down to talk, draw, and color our experiences and emotions, one of our neighbors experiencing homelessness was timid around the art supplies. I asked him what his favorite color was. His eyes opened wide. I don't remember the last time anyone asked me that!"

Another one of our neighbors experiencing homelessness said that he wished he could change how people thought about homelessness. Another said a place he had experienced joy was right there with us on that day. We know from research as well as experience that people have various emotional reactions to visible urban poverty and homelessness. Perhaps through art and conversation, big people with big emotions might just find the answers we need.
