Calling all SXSW badge holders and musicians- we need your help! Join us immediately following the panel “Music and Activism: Amplifying Your Voice for Social Good,” please join Chad Stokes (Co-Founder & Board Member of Calling All Crows, Artist State Radio/Dispatch), Jeb Gutelius (Executive Director, the Ally Coalition), Marika Anthony-Shaw (Founder and President of Plus 1, Artist Arcade Fire), Marta Riggins (Director, Employee Experience & Marketing), and Laura Ferreiro (Editor in Chief, Music for Good) for a service project to give back to the Austin community. Come and work alongside the panelists and network with other like-minded people in the social good and music space, while assembling care packages for Front Steps, an organization based in downtown Austin that provides shelter and affordable housing to those experiencing homelessness.
