Games For Change, an organization which celebrates real-world change made with video games and other technology, will begin its XR For Change initiatives at the start of March.
XR For Change will kick things off with “Truth in Documentary,” a panel about “finding truth and realism through immersive documentary.” The panel features Kristin Gutekunst, lead interactive producer of the World Food Programme, Michaela Holland, an experience designer and immersive storyteller with Emmy, Webby, and Sheffield Doc/Fest awards under her belt, Samantha Quick, a founding member of The Daily 360, and Zahra Rasool, the head of Contrast VR. The panel will be moderated by equally-impressive Jesse Damiani, the editor-at-large of VRScout.
XR For Change: “Truth in Documentary” runs for three hours, and will include welcome refreshments, the panel itself, and even an opportunity to demo some of the XR projects that will be discussed on the panel and network with other members of the XR4C community afterwards.
“Truth in Documentary” will run from 6-9 PM EST on March 4 at the SAP Next-Gen Innovation Space in Manhattan, New York City. The event is free to attend, but you must RSVP ahead of time and register all guests by name, for security purposes.
