Technicians of the Sacred: The New Native Apps

Monday, March 16
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 2
110 E 2nd St


When the drumming goes quiet in the auditorium, this panel will rock SXSW with a conversation about what happens when technology meets the world and developers bring tribal wisdom to the table. TECHNICIANS OF THE SACRED will showcase new projects and platforms where code and culture go hand-in-hand and technology is inspired by tribal narratives; in this interactive conversation you will see demos of innovation projects that capture the vision and serve the needs of communities who are protecting ancient ways and calling up the spirits while innovating with some of the top technologists in the world.
