SEGD at SXSW: Three Views

SXSW

Read Time: 6 minutes
One big reason people join SEGD is for the many networking opportunities it provides — including roundtables, seminars and conferences — where SEGD members can share what they’ve learned at major events across the country and the world. One such event is Austin’s annual SXSW experience. In this article, three SEGD members — Leslie Wolke (Mapwell Studio), Genell Hoechstetter (Meow Wolf) and Jemma Radick (IA Interior Architects) — share their take-aways from the 2022 SXSW conference held this past March 11-20. 

(And, of course, what would SXSW be without its celebrity appearances and sightings—and the occasional kiss-and-tell moments these brushes with fame might provide? Right, Leslie Wolke? Oh my! Read on to learn more!)
