SXSW 2022

Access, Inclusion & Immersive Technology

Description:

With new technologies pushing our world constantly forward, what does this mean for creating equitable futures? We have seen the power of AR/VR to immerse us in amazing experiences, dream worlds and landscapes never seen before, but the need to make sure that these technologies are made for and by every sector of our society is vital. This talk by Kaite O’Riley (leading international independent artist & Disability Arts Cymru representative) and Will Humphrey (Creative director at Sugar Creative) asking some of the questions to make this possible, looking at the opportunities this gives us, exploring the amazing and sometimes life changing experiences it brings, and how we challenge the sector to ensure that these vital elements are included to make this a future for all.
