Brief History:
Free Minds was founded in 2006 as a program of The University of Texas at Austin, in partnership with Austin Community College and Foundation Communities, an affordable housing nonprofit. Since 2013 we have operated as a program of Foundation Communities. We meet twice weekly at a site in East Austin with faculty from ACC and UT Austin teaching classes in literature, philosophy, history, writing, and creative writing. Students' children participate in a theater arts program with Creative Action. College credit is offered by ACC. Program alumni take part in monthly gatherings and an annual alumni picnic.
