Randi Southard (Indra) began as a painter with a vision and a calling to create a community space for dancers and artists of all breeds. Even after miraculously securing land in Austin’s booming East side and laying the concrete foundation for the giant metal building that would become Indra’s Awarehouse, few people could realize the potential she was envisioning. A collaboration from the beginning, her ability to inspire others has motivated ceaseless volunteer work largely using donated and up-cycled materials to build the eclectic space visible today. The explosion of Austin’s entertainment industry has created the need for a quality practice space that accommodates many types of performers, as well as an event space for special gatherings.
From rigging points on the ceiling to MMA mats for the dance floor, this play space accommodates extreme professional acrobats as well as casual ecstatic dancers. But as earthwork is currently escalating to resolve the property drainage issues that threaten the entire project, and permits are being planned to terraform the land, the need has never been greater for the financial flow to finalize the creation of what this space was meant to become – a beacon of creativity and a haven for those who dedicate their lives to honing their craft to share their art.
This space facilitates a diversification of offerings into a creation station where superfoods and medicinal herbs, as well as essential oils and beauty products, are all available under one roof.
This alchemy lab is the wave of the future, and you can be a part of all that!
