Be anywhere - everywhere! Building futures in XR

Virtual spaces are sites of great potential; for liberation, self expression and community, but also of great risk; perpetuating existing and harmful power structures. Join Alice Wroe, XR Lead at Atlantic Institute, Catherine Allen, CEO of Limina Immersive and Deepa Mann-Kler CEO Neon and Director Belfast XR Festival, to understand what the metaverse is and how it can be utilised for activist and creative means. They will consider how we can protect ourselves in the metaverse and how such spaces can enable kinder, fairer more beautiful futures.
