VR_SCI + ART FEST 2020

Spatial computing and immersive technology have a great promise to build the connections between the visitors, spaces and human feelings. This festival will cover different social aspects of today’s reality, where people are more than ever disconnected due to the global pandemic.

Time: Wed 2020-09-09 10.00 - 21.00

Location: Cyber-physical

How to communicate and be connected during the time of isolation?
How technology can help us to stay connected despite any crises?
How can we create meaningful scientific and artistic projects without being able to be close to each other?

All these and many other questions we will try to answer during VR_Sci + ARt Festival  by inviting our experts,
creators and makers. In addition, we will have a space for bringing new questions, visions and solutions
VR Sci & Art Festival ‘Social senses’ will be hosted by KTH Reaktorhallen during 9th of September. 

The event is supported by KTH Digitalization Platform.
