July 18, 2017
The Cities Summit, a new convergence program for SXSW 2018, explores the future of cities through two full days of inspirational talks, hands on learning sessions, and special events to spark connection. Open to all SXSW registrants, the Cities Summit is designed to bridge the dialogue between city leaders and decision makers with SXSW communities – digital creatives, entrepreneurs, designers, artists and others – for a fresh look at how we shape our cities, and how they shape us.
Cities Summit Focus Areas
As the Sunday, July 23 deadline approaches for PanelPicker entries, note that the Cities Summit will be centering programming around three focus areas:
City As a Narrative
This focus area will tie in the arts, film, music, and culture, for a look at how we tell stories about cities, and how places tell their own stories.
An in-depth look at how tech, startups, designers, policymakers, and nonprofits are finding new ways to solve existing problems.
Cities for All
This focus area explores the future of urbanization through topics such as social equity, accessibility, health, immigration, and climate change.
