One World was begun in 1993 as an education outreach program for which co-founders Hartt Stearns and lIuminada created performances and programs designed to enrich students' experiences of the arts and expand their knowledge of various world cultures. That part of our organization, Touring One World, has grown to over 300 performances and workshops each school year, reaching over 50,000 students in grades K - 12. By introducing our youngest community members to the world's various art forms and traditions, One World hopes to foster an understanding of people and cultures different from our own. From that base, the most evident aspect of One World came into being in the summer of 1999 - One World Theatre (OWT). Technologically advanced and "green-built," the theatre is softly nestled in the hills of West Austin. Resembling a Tuscan villa and described "as unique as the artist...presented," OWT has become known as a premiere forum showcasing an eclectic mix of world-renowned performers...and a place where magic happens. The very intimate setting elegantly accommodates the performer's artistry and a rapt audience of only 300. One World Theatre & Event Center is a premier venue for everything from Austin weddings and private parties, to corporate events and fundraisers. This romantic 16,000 square-foot indoor/outdoor Austin facility includes a banquet hall, theatre and outdoor plaza that create an ideal setting for any special event. Whether you’re planning any Austin weddings, corporate event, business conference, fundraiser or gala you can enhance your event with a private concert in our state of the art theatre. No other Austin Venue can offer the charm and amenities like the beautiful One World Theatre.
