On August 29, 2014, the families of the Auticenter, an association of parents with children in the autism spectrum in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic, hosted an event called Autism and Arts aimed to create a local grassroots effort to educate and raise autism awareness in their city. Milena Urbanova, Director of the Auticenter, invited producer Liza Krassner from Southern California, a parent of a child with autism, to screen the award winning documentary Through the Heart of Tango as part of the event. Together they partnered with the University of South Bohemia and Tango Argentino of Ceske Budejovice, to create an all-inclusive family friendly event that was open to everyone.
