The Brick Box were invited to speak at South By Southwest 2018 aka. SXSW: the largest tech, music, film and art conference in the world, in Austin, Texas.
Our panel ‘Absurdity Sells: The Value of Playful Events ‘ was selected via a combination of public votes and expert judges, and we appeared in a programme alongside big international brands, artists and leaders from all over the world. Almost 600 people came to the session and we had brilliant feedback, sharing our learning for the benefit of other communities around the world, and exporting some maverick British humour at the same time. The lovely folk at the Austin Chronicle wrote a great article about our panel – you can read it here.
Our trip was made possible by funding from the Department of International Trade and a successful Crowdfunding campaign which many of our supporters have generously to. If you were one of them, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We’re currently working on a video diary of our trip which will be in this space very soon.
