"Muntu" is a word that means both "tree" and "person."
What is happening to the muntu of East Austin amidst the city's changing cultural and geographical landscape?
This multimedia exhibit offers the entire Austin community a time and space for shared reflection on this and related
questions, for conversations of all kinds, in diverse media:
performance, poetry, storytelling, sculpture, music, essays, photography, and good old-fashioned talk.
