Morning Clean up…

Morning Beautification …

The Alley Clean up initiative is all about exploring creative and innovative ways to provide opportunities to serve within our community. The objective of this project is to improve and beautify the physical appearance of the 12th and Chicon Alleyway, located behind Big Easy, Full Circle Bar, and Dozen Street. In addition, our mission is aimed to unite residents, businesses, and other stakeholders in a way that positively impacts our community.


Evening Social ...

With some creative thinking and a little work, simple solutions can transform an ordinary alley space into an extraordinary public amenity.

Once the underutilized alley on 12th Street and Chicon is transformed, Austin Black Pride will activate it by holding a free showcase of local musicians, poets, and performance artists revealing the space’s transformation.

Local merchants, nonprofits and small businesses will be invited in to table, we will provide free food and drinks, and prominently display the community effort that has taken place.
