Event description
Trajectory Theatre brings together the brightest minds in the XR community for an evening of debate and discussion.

About this Event

The first in the ‘Trajectory Talks’ series will explore the nuances of a topic that has long fallen into platitudes and empty conjecture.

Does the answer to broadening audiences for XR lie with content, or technology? It's a challenging binary choice, but it's also potentially limiting.

We’ll unpack the arguments through lively discussion to reach a collective understanding of what a successful content-driven ecosystem looks like.

Four people from across the arts and tech space will frame the discourse, before we open up to a ‘fishbowl’ discussion where everyone has the opportunity to share their views and experiences. You are all experts, so we’ll hear from as many of you as we can.
