To kick off the day, The Great British Diversity Experiment winners and mentors met up.
Next I attended a keynote session with the actress Ellen Page and filmmaker Ian Daniel, who spoke about Gaycation, the documentary series they’ve made with Spike Jonze and Vice.
The second session I attended, "A Human and a Robot Play a Drawing Game", was by far the best talk of the day. Sougwen Chung, a researcher and artist at MIT Media Lab, spoke about the relationship between humans and machines.
I visited Analog, an event by American Greetings that featured activities such as printmaking and hand lettering. For me this wins the most interesting and behavioural tie-in and presence from a brand at SXSW because of its humanness.
Then I spoke about bravery and diversity at The Girls' Lounge for the ANDYs.
