Purposeful series

in VR

15th March 2018, 18:00-21:00
@ Century Club, London

How does new technology inspire us to tell stories in new ways? And how can we ensure authenticity and content integrity remain at the heart of the experiences we are creating?

Virtual Reality (VR) has a powerful capability to reshape the way stories are told and strengthen their impact and connection with audiences.

For the next event in our Purposeful series, we will hear from three innovators – each from a different field – all at the forefront of establishing what new technologies such as VR could mean for reinventing traditional content formats and storytelling. We’ll hear their thoughts on what they’ve learnt from working in VR, and what their next area of focus is likely to be.

Join us for good discussions, drinks and, naturally, a lot of VR.
