SXSW 2017

Published on Wednesday, 8th March 2017

Between 9th and 14th March, almost 30 delegates from Bristol & Bath's creative sector will be travelling to the world's largest interactive festival in Austin Texas, SXSW.

Chris Thurling and Ed Thomas are mentoring our SXSW Apprentice Jasmine Thompson who will be recording all her experiences along with the other delegates.  With Bristol Media's mission to be the best connected creative city in the UK, we have challenged the group to make as many valuable connections as they can while they are in Austin and by taking a selfie and contact details, these connections will be added to a digital map on their return, demonstrating Bristol's creative reach globally.

You can follow all the updates including Jasmine's personal diary on Twitter @Bristol_Media #SelfieSW and #BristolSXSW1k.

Agencies, companies and freelancers attending SXSW include Mubaloo, Honey, Bray Leino, Halo, Mr B & Friends, Forrest Brown, Invest Bristol & Bath, Darwin Peltan, Icon Films, Redspark Digital, McCann, ADLIB, Taxi and Zone.

Follow on Twitter for all the excitement and we guarantee you'll want to visit Austin yourself in 2018!
