GLOBAL LOCAL is a co-powered, traveling-community activation bringing together visionaries everywhere who are breathing new paradigms into existence. Most recently taking place - GLOBAL LOCAL: Sacramento (Watch: http://youtu.be/U-dxvGmlLAo) - and in it’s fourth year in Texas, GLOBAL LOCAL: Austin (formerly known as “Listen Global, Act Local”) returns to beautiful East Austin during SXSW on Friday, March 20th from 1 pm - 7 pm. GLOBAL LOCAL: Austin is... A micro-festival celebrating global sol sounds of the future. A grassroots meeting point for cultural creators from across the globe. A garden where seeds are sown. A backyard of a world-renowned bebop trumpeter who called Texas home. A marketplace for people who make things with their hands & hearts. A blank canvas to splash with color. A stage for world-class international and local talent. A feeling. Community.

AUTONOMY ECONOMY BUILDING & EXCHANGE “The best part of the day was just finding a party shaped by someone with vision and skill, and not moving. This was a lush, carefully cultivated multi-media experience arranged so exquisitely.” – Pop Matters “…one of the most off the map and lovingly curated events of SXSW.” – Austinist “Today, we’re highlighting a special showcase of artists, mostly from the Americas, who are uniquely globally-attuned and are also trying to highlight Austin’s diverse roots.” - MTV IGGY “On a beautiful hilly space couched in colorful graffiti and local vendors, the carefully curated mix of artists on the bill for ‘Global Local’’ came through with a cosmopolitan blend of international musical artistry. The event put a community-minded activist twist on what a music festival event can embody.” - Remezcla “The event is all about the reunion of creative and activist communities from around the world, and especially about the visibility of Austin’s diverse local communities in the midst of the corporate heavy treading that has become SXSW.” - Chief Boima “While yes, it’s easy to jump on that side of the cynic fence it’s even easier and more importantly more healthy to support and appreciate the events going around SXSW that truly attach themselves to the basic nature of the festival.. THE MUSIC.” - Nuevos Esquemas FREE AND OPEN TO ALL 1pm-7pm Estella Sanchez on Global Local: https://vimeo.com/104461445 Global Local 2014 Photos: http://on.fb.me/1FZerIg Global Local 2013 Video: http://youtu.be/6hNAy_TgCzo #globallocal2015 #GLOBALOCAL #AUTONOMYECONOMY A feeling.
