Performances at SXSW EDU are a unique element of the festival programming. SXSW EDU has featured spoken word, staged readings, and student musical showcases. Performances offer attendees an experience that is both entertaining and educational.
Following each of the performances, the performers and their associated organizations will lead the audience through a workshop-style experience offering a deeper understanding of the concepts that fueled the performance and in many cases, activities that can be adopted for the classroom.
Performance proposals can be submitted through PanelPicker. The PanelPicker platform enables the community to lend their voice to the event through a two step online process. Step one encourages the community to enter a session proposal to speak at SXSW EDU. Step two allows the community to browse all of the ideas, leave comments, and vote for their favorite proposals. PanelPicker proposals for SXSW EDU 2020 will be accepted July 1 – 19, 2019. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
