Welcome to MINDPOP

A MINDPOP can be defined as that rewarding experience when everything clicks – in a brief moment elusive knowledge becomes real understanding.

In 2009, a group of dedicated Austin educators, philanthropists, parents and civic leaders came together for a collective MINDPOP. They found they all shared the belief that when creativity and the arts are integrated into school lessons, students are more engaged and learning improves. On this principle, MINDPOP was founded and now works to expand creative learning throughout Austin.
