SXSW so far: Some favorite moments


The South by Southwest Conference and Festivals kicked off Friday with a new word on everyone’s lips: “convergence.” How that will continue to shape Austin’s signature cultural event, now in its 31st year, will be fun to watch and experience.

Here we share some of our favorite moments from the first four days as we head into the second half of SXSW 2017, which continues through Saturday. As always, the days are a mix of serious subjects, from immigration to cancer research to social justice; creative pursuits, from movies to music to art and more; and sometime wacky side events (surf’s up on Congress Avenue).
