SXSW offers families so many experiences over the next week in Austin, Texas! I hope you're packing up to get down here to see what we have to offer at our annual festival.World Vision Experience, a new, innovative and high-tech mobile experience that transports visitors to the country of Tanzania through multimedia. There, visitors will experience life through the eyes of local children and families inside an expandable semi-truck.
MRA has partnered with World Vision to bring the story of one African village to life. The Ride to Kisongo includes eight modules where visitors can experience life and history in Tanzania. They’ll be escorted by Obey, a World Vision-Sponsored Child who guides them through the village discussing the problems of the past, the significant progress his town has enjoyed in recent years, the continuing challenges they face, and the exciting opportunities he and his family see for the future thanks to ongoing support.
In addition, the Creative Arts Group is hosting A Night of Film, Music and Inspiration at Zilker Hillside Theater as a gift to South by Southwest (SXSW) attendees and the Austin community. It features musical acts 1211, Ed Kowalczyk, Glen Phillips, Ramy Antoun, Chris Pierce, Sara and The Spark and Sergio Andrade who will join together to score three inspiring films. This FREE event will benefit World Vision and the Ride to Kisongo will be on-site for event attendees to visit.
