Every year, SXSW brings together creatives, innovators, artists, musicians, filmmakers, storytellers, and curious learners in Austin, Texas, to explore what’s next. SXSW Interactive has long been a beacon for culture and creativity, so it’s no surprise that we find ourselves back in Downtown Austin for SXSW’s first in-real-life festival in a few years.

At Skillshare, we believe there’s a special magic in staying curious and embracing the joy and journey of creative pursuit. We’re bringing that spirit with us to SXSW, where we will be sponsoring talks, hosting panels, and attending eye-opening sessions from creatives and peers throughout the city. Best yet, we’ll be bringing the trending news, announcements, and insights from the fest right to you – here on our blog, on TikTok and Instagram, and of course, in-person for those who are attending.

Here’s what you can expect from Skillshare at SXSW:
