This page features panels at SXSW Interactive 2013 that will be presented within the BiT House at the Hilton-Garden Inn.
Additionally - this page includes panels that will take place outside of the BiT House that self-selected BiT as a tag, or have panelists or subject matter that we think is of particular interest to blacks in tech. If you would like to have a panel included on this page, please email the SXSW schedule page url to us at email@example.com.
From Black Futurist art exhibitions, to food justice hackathons, and STEAM teach-ins for youth in resource-poor communities, this panel explores the delicious intersections of food, art, and technology over a southern meal featuring creamy grits and soulful toppings (vegan, vegetarian & meat-based menu).
Through their living, working, and playing in the crosshairs of these sectors, these presenters push the bounds of culture and identity with their commitment to regenerative design and their execution of locally grown solutions addressing global issues. “Grits & Greens” is presented by Hub Oaklandin collaboration with Indiegogo and BlackGirlsCode.
Our wholesome meal will be prepared and served by Austin’s king of fresh, natural comfort foodHoover Alexander, who owns Hoover’s Cooking and Soular Foods Garden, which was designed to “bridge the gap between home style, home-cooking and healthy, nutritious, from-the-garden food.”
The Grits and Greens Panel is free to all SXSW badge holders. However, we will need a firm headcount to provide to the caterer for the purpose of meal preparation. To reserve your meal – please fill out the form at the link below".
