Earlier this year President Obama, and the First Lady visited South By Southwest in Austin. He must have been inspired, because the President will now host his own version of the festival on October 3rd.
In an earlier speech the President said: “It is you, the young and fearless at heart, the most diverse and educated generation in our history, who the nation is waiting to follow,” and in that spirit, South by South Lawn will challenge young leaders to build on progress.
In coordination with the American Film Institute (AFI), the President’s Committee on Arts and Humanities (PCAH), and South by Southwest, the South Lawn event will be comprised of three parts: Interactive, Film, and Music. Not only can you attend, but you can also nominate yourself or a friend to participate, here. Metal. We want Metal.
