Moon XR: Speculative Storytelling and Future Media

Speakers

The Moon landing in 1969 marked a pivotal milestone in the history of humanity and, consequently in the history of media. Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first human beings to walk on the moon changing many things, but especially changing how stories were told and *broadcasted* forever.
In the year 2020, we want to imagine and build possible futures where tech, media, diversity and science play a significantly radical new role in storytelling. Immersed in a collaborative exercise of world building, where future humans walk the moon again, we will go through the elements of dystopian and protopian constructions and how emerging media can shape the experience of a new social milestone: welcome to Moon XR.
