When? September 11th – 15th (Pop-up Week), September 22nd (Conference)
What is it?
VR Pop-up Week = seven days full of virtual reality madness in the heart of Kreuzberg. There will be (spontaneous) workshops, showcases, beer, and nerd talk. VR Pop-up Week is very informal and free of charge. This is a VR playground.
VR Conference = a one day event that brings together all kinds of VR enthusiasts (journalists, storytellers, media innovators, techies) to share experiences and seek inspiration. This is much more structured and focused, and you will need to purchase a ticket.
Why are we there?
We attend in the scope of project Fader – a Google DNI-funded collaboration between Vragments, Euronews, and Deutsche Welle aiming to create a web-based VR/360 story telling editor. Project partner Vragments is (co-)hosting both events.
Alexander Plaum (@lxplm) will be in Berlin to support the organizers, showcase Fader, and discuss hands-on VR storytelling on Tuesday, September 12th and Friday, September 22nd. Come and say hi.
