Creative Directions festival

Monash Faculty of Arts’ Creative Directions is a festival of ideas and industry know-how that explores critical issues shaping the contemporary media, cultural and communications industries. SensiLab are partnering with the festival this year to present a session, Critical VR.

Virtual Reality (VR) is increasingly celebrated as a shortcut to empathy, a way for audiences to experience the world from an entirely new perspective. But can VR really change hearts and minds? In this session SensiLab’s Sojung Bahng and Creative Director of┬áVRTOV, Oscar Raby, will examine the communications potential of VR, exploring challenging new projects which have used VR for social cognition, empathy and political documentary.

Date and time: Friday 5 October, 1:30-3pm
Venue: C110, Building C, Caulfield Campus
