REBEL + REST | The Rejuvenation Zone

The Zone will offer massage and apothecary therapy for physical de-stress; a reading nook with our favorite selects from the leading voices in social justice and self-care; a storytelling  booth aimed to assistance attendees in learning how to document their stories as process for reconciliation and healing; and the opportunity to consult mental health professionals to identify and practice practical, everyday tools to achieve rest. We hope the REBEL + REST Rejuvenation Zone will activate new understanding and practices for attendees throughout SXSW and into their daily lives.
