Back 2 the Future: Storytelling in Virtual Reality

Six Square – Austin’s Black Cultural District demonstrates the power to build community using technology to bring history to life and bridge generational, digital, and socio-economic divides. Here we present a diverse panel of our partners to highlight two important projects that we launched in 2018 that helped to reanimate cultural spaces and connect community. Using virtual reality, Six Square worked with Vamonde to launch virtual tours of The District. We also collaborated with a small team of engineers, architects, artists, landscape designers, attorney’s and others to create a beautiful mural garden. Community support was facilitated with the creation of a virtual reality rendering of the space. This interactive session with Six Square allows audience engagement with the technology.
