SXSW is launching SXSW EDU Online as part of their 2021 offerings. The digital experience will feature conference keynotes and sessions, screenings, showcases, networking, and exhibitions. The dates for SXSW EDU Online are March 9 – March 11, 2021 and SXSW Online will take place March 16 – March 20, 2021.
Entries for the 2021 digital experience will open on Tuesday, October 6 with PanelPicker® proposals for SXSW and SXSW EDU. More information regarding participation in SXSW EDU competitions, film program, performances, and the mentor program is forthcoming.
If you have questions about SXSW EDU Online 2021, please see our FAQ.
Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, we expect that the City of Austin will continue its restrictions on large gatherings through March 2021, so it will not be possible for SXSW to stage a large, in-person event within our usual footprint.
The focus now is on SXSW Online 2021, and we look forward to bringing you the many aspects of our event that make it unique while connecting with our attendees in new and meaningful ways.
