Mitch Goodwin was invited to speak on the panel session, Warhol Goes Social at the SXSW Interactive conference component of the 2013 SXSW Festival in Austin Texas. The panel was composed of Goodwin, artist Laurie Fricke, Associate Creative Director at Critical Mass Christiaan Welzel and the panel was moderated by David Jones, VP of Social Media at Critical Mass (Canada).

Today, everyone is a "Creative." With the boom of visually-based social platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, technology has leveled the playing field. Does this really change how we define art and creativity? Artistic purists believe these tools cheapen the creative output with seventeen standard filters available to every untrained eye. But in true entrepreneurial spirit, those apps encourage a more democrative view of creativity, allowing user to share their inspiration with their friends and create beauty where it previously would have been impossible. Is there a difference between high-brow and low-brow art in relation to what social media enables everyone to create?
