Project

Representing the European project MEDIAVERSE (GA 957252), the TransMedia Catalonia research group (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), proposes an activity to explore how new technologies can contribute to social development. Virtual reality and 360º videos have now become part of everyday life. The aim of the activities scheduled for the residency is to explore how multimedia content, together with the co-creation process itself, can contribute to solving social challenges; such as isolation, accessibility and social exclusion. Through practical and reflection activities, participants will be able to understand the potential of new technologies, and experiment with them creatively.
