Chula League is a nonprofit formed in 2005 to support the arts, art education, and artful outdoor spaces in East Austin managed by a small, grassroots board of directors.

We work to ensure that the arts and public outdoor spaces play a valued role in the educational, economic, and cultural well being of East Austin neighborhoods. Chula produces a variety of projects to achieve its mission and purpose, including its flagship event the Cherrywood Art Fair and the arts-mentoring program Little Artist BIG ARTIST.

Our Mission

The purpose of Chula League is:

  • To support arts and arts education
  • To advocate for our children’s future through positive, productive, and meaningful mentoring relationships
  • To produce and promote community events for emerging and established artists and artisans
  • To enhance or preserve the beauty of public outdoor spaces through art, design and creative activity
  • To revitalize East Austin and attract visitors to our city for increasing economic impact

While daily operations are led by Chula League’s executive team (elected officers + Executive Director), the appropriate and supportive involvement of board members is both critical and expected for the success of the organization.

Our governing documents and conflict of interest policy can be made available by emailing secretary@chulaleague.org. Financial statements and impact summaries are published on GuideStar.

Help support the arts and cultural diversity in East Austin!
