Innovative Latinos Showcased at SXSW: The Social Revolución

Posted: Feb 02, 2012


This year at South By Southwest (SXSW) Latinos in the digital media space will have their very own lounge, party, and award ceremony highlighting their innovative work in social media and beyond. The events, wrapped into the name The Social Revolución, are being put together by Cultural Strategies, the communications firm in Austin, Texas.

The Revolucionario Awards, which will be awarded in three categories: The New Americano, The Mobilizer and The Innovator. The idea is to celebrate the work of Latinos online, whether they are independent or part of larger organizations, and consequently help open doors for even more Latinos in the digital space.

This event is important because, although Latinos are overpopulated on social networks and social media use, they are not always represented at conferences like SXSWi. Thus far several hundred people are expected to participate, and The Social Revolución has partnered with several other organizations, including News Taco.
