South By SouthWest: SXSW 2021 Above Austin, Texas! An Informal Meetup...

Subscribe to Health Systems Chat!


Our 3rd straight year in social VR during South by Southwest (SXSW) the annual giant festival usually held in Austin, Texas. It is a week of crowded bars, free stuff (and often free alcohol), thousands of concerts, afterparties, and no parking (according to the Urban Dictionary). The related SXSW EDU Conference & Festival "empowers the community to advance teaching and learning as an international education conference". Even tho SXSW is virtual this year, you can still rave about SXSW in an Austin, Texas-themed venue (including a giant statue of blues guitarist native son Stevie Ray Vaughan) above downtown Austin, Texas!
