Michigan House is going back.

This experiment in collaboration and creativity that brings the most dynamic parts of Michigan to the rest of the world is going back to Austin and back to SXSW.

We’ll be bringing the Michigan music, the Michigan design, the Michigan ideas – all to create a living, breathing experience that defies Rust Belt expectations. And hopefully we’ll also be bringing a bunch of you too.

With that in mind, Creative Many Michigan has worked with SXSW to offer a new incentive to our friends and partners to join our journey to Austin, TX: discounted badges to SXSW for members of Creative Many Michigan.

Discounts will be based on the number of attendees, so the more who purchase as members of Creative Many, the deeper the savings. Discounts may exceed 40% or more off the “Walk-up Rate” based on the number of participants.

Not a member? Don’t worry, a complimentary one-year membership will be included with purchase of your badge. Creative Many will announce the final price on December 1, 2017 via email. See the SXSW website for details on standard prices for platinum, interactive, film and music badges. The SXSW 2018 conference takes place March 9-18.

Be a part of the conversation and reserve your badge for 2018 today.
