Come meet the 2017 SXSW Community Service Awards honorees who are solving global issues and helping their communities through technology. Complimentary food, drinks and networking at 6pm, ceremony begins at 6:30pm.
The SXSW Community Service Awards honors Dewey Winburne, one of the original co-founders of the SXSW Interactive Festival as well as many other things in the Austin community: a family man, a teacher, a visionary, a connector, and an innovator. He believed that technology could bridge the digital divide and help those less fortunate than others. Although Winburne passed away in 1999, his legacy continues. His life exemplified how one individual can truly make an impact in their community.
