Event description
Virtual reality installations on a range of global health issues including breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, alcoholism and child labour

About this Event

This year's Global Health Virtual Reality Exhibition will feature eight installations examining stories about hidden worlds told across a variety of immersive and interactive technologies.

In Anonymous (being the child of an alcoholic), I'm Still Kenny (multiple sclerosis) and The Waiting Room (breast cancer), virtual reality transports us into intimate spaces where people we may encounter in our day-to-day lives share with us their lived experiences and struggles.

Through The Wardrobe invites us into a bedroom where we uncover the daily considerations non-binary people must make when choosing their clothing. We explore a physical installation of clothes and accessories which is augmented by a digital layer of animations and spatial audio using a Microsoft HoloLens mixed reality headset.

In Dreams of Gold (child labour), House Without Windows (children affected by conflict in Central African Republic), Priya and the Lost Girls (sex trafficking) and Suffer Not A Witch To Live (street children in Nigeria), the lives of children and young people are uncovered using interactive graphics novels, augmented reality comic books and virtual reality.

The Global Health VR Exhibition is part of the Global Health Film Festival 2019
