(Community Matters) Bob Kinney’s asked that I post about this
Olivia Mercury Pepper and Katie Rose Pipkin have been building The Island Community in the backyard of their Northeast Hyde Park home at the east end of 47th Street across from the railroad tracks for a couple years now.They are seeking community support through Kickstarter for opening a multi-arts performance, exhibition gallery, puppet theatre and arts/gathering space by mid-March.
I wrote about them on my Austin Music & More blog – http://bobkinney.wordpress.com/
There is a link to a seven-minute video about The Island and plans to grow it to create Wardenclyffe in East Austin under the sixth photo on the blog post.
Olivia (who works the register at Wheatsville) and Katie (one of Turk’s daughters) host The Island Community.
