About

CotFG is a volunteer-run arts organization supporting creative expression and counter-culture community.

The annual New Media Art and Sound Summit is a three-day summer festival dedicated to diversifying Austin’s musical ecosystem.

The group originally formed at an old church on the east side in 2003 and over the years has included rotating casts of volunteers, artists, local audience and long distance pen-pals. The organization has presented over one thousand events to date including concerts, art exhibitions, workshops, film screenings and other adventurous excursions. In 2007 CotFG became a sponsored project of SVT and held monthly events at their former Manor Rd home until June of 2016. They continue to present high quality, cutting edge, experimental music all over Austin.
