Description

Experience Virtual Reality and join the debate - an evening with Kilter Theatre and the University of Bristol's Immersive Encounters Team

Virtual Reality (VR) is evolving at an electrifying pace & millions of pounds are poised to invest in the next big thing... whatever that may be!?! The field is rife with excitement but before we embrace these virtual worlds, should we be questioning - Is VR a trickster: an empathy machine for journalists & charity workers? Is it a life-saver: a therapist's dream to climb inside our heads & soothe our troubled minds? Or will it anticlimax as just another suped-up games-console to plonk on your noggin?

The University of Bristol's Immersive Encounters Team needs YOU (the greatest range of the greatest minds) to help imagine a future where VR fulfils its potential for good & we avert any uncomfortable ethical conflict!

Join University of Bristol scientists & radical theatre-makers, Kilter to collectively unpick future applications & ethics in this terrific immersive emerging technology.

Experience the latest VR headsets for a range of immersive experiences before joining in the debate during a fast-talking, experimental and fun workshop.

Suitable for all inquisitive minds ages 18+
