Austin, Texas – Every March, the focus of the creative world’s attention turns to Austin, Texas and the SXSW Conferences and Festivals. While the focus is on the invasion of celebrities, techies and musicians, this event also relies on thousands of people that help make SXSW a reality. Over 3,000 people from Austin, as well as all over the nation and even the world, generously offer their time and talents to volunteer at SXSW and help produce one of the most notable annual events held anywhere. It’s a unique opportunity to catch a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music, Film and Interactive Conferences and Festivals, while earning a chance to see informative panels, catching an up-and- coming band or stand-up comedian, questioning an emerging filmmaker or rubbing elbows with your favorite internet idol. It’s a great opportunity to network, socialize and most of all have fun.
