Storytelling, Hip-Hop, and the Happiest City on Earth: Day Two Highlights at SXSW Cities Summit

Luminocity - 2018 SXSW Place by Design Finalist

The second and final day of the Cities Summit kicks off today with a full day of dynamic programming, performance, pop-up exhibits, and events exploring the future of our cities.

Arrive early to enjoy this morning's coffee break, from 8:30am - 9:30am, presented by ICMA, on the Four Seasons Terrace. SaulPaul, local musician with a Message and the 2017 Austinite of the Year, will be doing a Cities Summit day one recap rap in Ballroom CD just prior to the first session.

Place by Design, SXSW's public space design competition, also takes place today and is something that you do not want to miss. The competition celebrates transformative work at the intersection of art, technology, and design that rethinks how we use and interact with our cities. The six Finalists will present their work in a fast-paced showcase during the Cities Summit to the Place by Design Jurors.

The conclusion of the two-day Cities Summit will culminate at the Cities Summit Closing Party at New Dutch Wave beginning at 6:00pm at the Waller Ballroom.
