SXSW 2022 Needs You!

Gene and Dave at SXSW 2018

SXSW, started in 1987, is the world’s largest music, film, and interactive festival and conference. Our in-person event will be held March 7-20 this year in downtown Austin. SXSW has an accessibility program for attendees with disabilities and is looking for volunteers to assist.

It is helpful if you have experience with disability issues, have some knowledge of Austin, and want to help people. Training will be provided. There is a minimum requirement of 24 hours to be a SXSW volunteer and in exchange, volunteers will receive a badge to attend the event. 

If you are interested in learning more about the SXSW volunteer program including the different levels of badges you can earn, our COVID policy, or other volunteer information, please visit or email us at
