Current Events

AIR Creates

Recognizing our collective need to be able to encounter and appreciate art and those who create it, the board of AIR has developed a special section on our website called AIR Creates. Here we want to feature the talents of a diverse sampling of creative genius from the Dallas Metroplex and beyond. Whether an exposition of professional artists or the presentation of home-schooled children, we wish to brighten and lighten your day.

Through social media, new posts will be publicized and available on the website. We will have a section of today’s artists and a special greenhouse section for the “up and coming” creatives under the age of 18. We will feature posts from artists who are familiar to AIR. We want you to submit your creations for others to share as well.

AIR Time


AIR Time is a guest artist interview series featuring North Texas artists and creative thinkers. AIR defines artist very broadly. Past artist interviews have included Kevin Carr and Jamie Fulton of Community Beer Company; Erin Hannigan, principal oboist with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra; the Paul Taylor Dance Company, and voiceover artist and actor, Alan Ackles.

Previously, AIR Time interviews were held at the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson. Season 10 interviews will now be conducted virtually and can be viewed on the third Wednesday of each month via Facebokk Live. For a schedule of upcoming interviews, click here.

Storytelling Festival

Storytelling Festival

Storytelling Festival is a month-long celebration of the art of storytelling focused on the idea that everyone has a story to tell. Multiple school performances, as well as workshops for adults, help develop storytelling as well as performances for all ages to enjoy.

AIR is honored to host renowned and award-winning tellers such as DC Cornish and Elizabeth Ellis.

Storytelling is presented to students at various local Richardson elementary schools. The festival includes an interview with a featured storyteller at the live AIR Time event.

The closing performance of the Festival showcases a nationally recognized storyteller in partnership with First United Methodist Church Richardson.
