Polis Creative is a brand-new nonprofit with the primary goal of providing free studio space for artists of all mediums in Austin.
By using a crowd-funded supporter model, our goal is to cover rent for the space, compensate those keeping it safe and clean, and provide supplies such as paint, canvases, tools, and panels. Supporters will receive rewards from the artists they are supporting each month, or on a time-table that is most convenient to them!
We would like to humbly urge that if you are able to set up a recurring donation, please do so. Our largest challenge in the ongoing success of our mission is making sure we are able to pay rent for the studio each month. Thank you!
In addition to providing an open and accessible space for creation, we will also be providing community programs such as beginner painting demos, gallery shows, art markets, and fundraiser events for other worthy causes.
We have been graciously supported in our launch efforts by Honeycomb Group (which is why it says their name on the right side under Benefitting Charity) For clarity, 100% of donations will go to supporting Polis Creative!

What are Reward Points?All supporters who are interested in receiving rewards will have the option to do so! In order to allow our supporters to customize their rewards to what is most convenient for them, we have created the following two options for redeeming rewards:
Option 1: We will send you the rewards for your supporter tier (and all previous tiers as well) each month.
Option 2: Some supporters may not want to receive stickers or prints each month, or would prefer to save up their "reward points" to redeem a higher level reward. For supporters who choose this option, each dollar donated will earn one reward point. These points can be saved over time, and cashed in at your convenience. For example, if a supporter wants to donate $25 a month, and would rather save their points than receive a print each month, they can select this option and wait until their reward points reach the desired amount to receive an original piece from one of our artists!
