Social Good Hub Opens Sunday Highlighting Design & Storytelling

March 11, 2017 John Krause

For the fourth year, the SXSW Social Good Hub is a destination for creatives, designers, media, and other attendees to connect around the multi-faceted topic of social change. This year’s Hub is at Techspace and features pop-up art, design, and VR exhibitions as well as two full days of collaborative programming. Curated and produced by the SXSW Eco team, the Hub’s program explores design, health, storytelling, and the arts through a lens of advocacy.

The Hub is geared towards people already working in the social impact space, as well as SXSW attendees looking to learn more and contribute to a cause. In addition to talks and participatory sessions, both days at the Hub are interspersed with happy hours and creative activities. Some program highlights below, see the full schedule of events at sxsw.com/socialgood.

The Hub’s Connect & Create lounge by PlusOne will connect festival goers through the arts, and our friends at the Amplifier Foundation are giving away Shepard Fairey posters that amplify the voices of grassroots movements through art and community engagement.
