WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will serve as a presenter at the 2014 South by Southwest (SXSW) music, film and interactive festival in March.

The Australian publisher and journalist, known for leaking secrets online, started WikiLeaks in 2006. The organization has since published millions of documents with the goal of promoting transparency between governments and citizens.

Assange will participate in a live conversation with Benjamin Palmer, co-founder of digital creative agency the Barbarian Group, via satellite on March 8 at 11 a.m. The two will discuss some of the topics that have fueled both of their organizations, including surveillance, technological advances in the digital age and the future of democracy.
