We’re excited to announce that Achieve President Derrick Feldmann was selected to speak at SXSW 2017. His session is titled Creative & Digital for Successful Social Movements, where Derrick will discuss how effective social movements like the Ice Bucket Challenge came together by combining thoughtful narrative with digital activation to facilitate ongoing, deliberate action. Derrick will explore what makes social movements fail and what makes them last by focusing on creative storytelling and digital strategies to build social movements that draw the awareness needed to motivate people to act.
