The future of storytelling is bringing a variety of platforms, loaded with opportunities and challenges. While it may feel like something from a sci-fi movie, augmented reality is quickly approaching and changing how we may experience a news story. AR is not simply overlaying movement atop of a static image. The true value of AR is the use of space to add context to stories in new ways.

Join a panel of leading immersive storytellers as they discuss, debate and share insights about telling stories via physical spaces.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists and editors looking to better understand the opportunities and challenges of augmented reality
  • Newsroom leaders interested in incorporating immersive storytelling structures in their organizations

  • Anyone who would like to learn more about the new horizons of journalism tech
