Youth ages 8 - 18 living in the 78744 zip code are eligible to earn a brand new Dell 2 in 1 Chromebook computer by participating in a special free community event at South By Southwest on March 12th entitled What Once Was.
What Once Was is a free SXSW community event that explores the rapidly vanishing cultural heritages of Black and Brown folks in East Austin. Students and family members will enjoy light food and refreshments, panels, a vendor market and a scavenger hunt featuring virtual and augmented reality experiences based on key East Austin historical locations. These experiences have been developed by college-aged youth participating in E4 Youth’s Creative Leadership Academy (CLA) in cooperation with local creative and technology industry professionals.
Students and family members will be provided with free transportation to and from the event courtesy of CapMetro Transit Adventures.
This opportunity is possible due to support from E4 Youth, Six Square, Capital Metro, E3 Alliance and Austin Public Health. The Community Youth Development Program is funded by the City of Austin through a grant from the Texas Department of Family Protective Services.
