USA- South by Southwest

 

South by Southwest offers an unparalleled convergence of the music, interactive, and film industries and fosters an engaging atmosphere for professional and educational growth. 

This industry immersion course provides Ohio University MDIA students the opportunity to engage with all facets of the music industry at the largest media industry gathering of the year. Students will hear personally from industry professionals in a variety of ways, including panel discussions, keynote addresses, interviews, workshops, as well as one-on-one mentoring sessions with professionals in their specific field of choice. 

Students will also get to observe firsthand the scope and networks that exist within today’s current music and media industries. Not only that, but they will have access to hundreds of showcases for established and upcoming artists in the evenings, getting to experience the best music of the year first hand.
