Playground Elements

The wall-to-wall creative energy comes from a number of elements taking place in the SXSWedu Playground.

  • Engage in stimulating discussions with various organizations that are featured as Playground Displays.
  • Join a Playground Hands On, a facilitated instructional exercise that supports direct participation.
  • Catch a Playground Talk, a short stage presentation that ignites meaningful conversation and concludes with a dynamic audience Q&A.
