Awavena
Lynette Wallworth | 2023 |  VR Film | Australia
The project is a collaboration between a community and an artist, melding technology and transcendent experience so that a vision can be shared, and a story told of a people ascending from the edge of extinction.

Draw for Change: We Exist, We Resist
Mariana Cadenas Sangronis | VR Interactive| Belgium
Enter the vibrant world of Maremoto, a young Mexican cartoonist who, through her drawings, empowers women and addresses the taboos of her society.
Visit Maremoto’s studio, join her on an afternoon of making street art and experience what it feels like to move as a woman through a metropolis in Mexico, a country where 10 women are murdered every day and tens of thousands go missing.

Emperor

Dance Permit Denied
Claudix Vanesix |2023 | VR Film |  Peru
Claudix Vanesix was born as a woman, but now goes through life as a non-binary trans person. It is impossible for them to participate in the traditional Peruvian dance Los Negritos de Sipsa, which is passed down in their family from father to son, cutting them off from part of their own culture. Experience a crossover of theatrical performance and dance.

Darkening
