A big thing that’s happening right now is the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. SXSW celebrates the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries and is ground zero for the future of media. I was gratified to learn through my friend Seth Bernard (who’s at SXSW) that a number of Michigan artists, organizations and companies have partnered for Michigan House, an effort spearheaded by Creative Many Michigan. Creative Many is a statewide organization focused on developing creative people, creative places and the creative economy for a competitive Michigan.
They have some cool things on the schedule including a Michigan music showcase featuring Flint Eastwood and the Go Rounds, so if you’re in Austin, definitely drop by and in any case, check out the folks who are taking Michigan messages to the world!
