OtherSide Austin wishes to bring multiple genres together, to create individually or collaborate. This platform is also a place to discuss ideas, educate, and learn from the other side. Some perspectives may differ, conflict, or challenge each other. Yet, the acceptance of other contributions is paramount. In every step of the way, we evolve with the industry.
