In 2008 as part of the South by Southwest Interactive Festival, Beaconfire created The Beacon: Lounge With a Conscience as a hip home away from home for non-profit and socially conscious attendees. Every spring since, this vibrant and dynamic community comes together in our unique and energizing oasis where they can network with 1,000-1,500 of their peers, catch their breath, and share the experience with other people who really “get it”.
The Beacon will return to Austin for our 6th year March 7-11, 2014. Our focus for SxSW 2014 will be sharing the social good innovations and stories with a larger SxSW audience by highlighting the work of the leaders who are making real change in the world. In other words – YOU!
