    Elizabeth Kahura

    A native of Kenya who has lived in the U.S. since the 1990s, Elizabeth Kahura has educated audiences of all ages through puppetry, music, and more through her African Safari program. For over two decades she has presented storytelling and art projects demonstrating the similarities between the cultures and traditions of the mother continent and the United States.

    Sims Elementary Repurposing Update

    For generations of East Austinites, Sims Elementary provided a hub for the community until its emotional closure in 2021. Neighbors of the nearly eight-acre property would like to see it restored as some kind of a community space. While public input has tossed a lot of ideas into the ring, including a playground, affordable housing for teachers and their families, communal gardens, and a grocery store, there’s still a big question mark over the future of the Sims campus. Austin ISD will provide an update in a 6pm virtual meeting. – Kimberley Jones
