The Hive Mind

The Hive Mind
  • Ages: 16+
  • Total Hours: 2 (One x 2-hour session)

Gather with interested community members and industry leaders to discuss how immersive media is informing the present and shaping our physical and virtual futures.

Immersive technologies are bridging the physical and digital worlds, changing the landscape of everything from storytelling to education. What are the applications of these emerging technologies—and their effects? Join Open Signal community members, artists and industry leaders to talk over these issues. This discussion group will have an ASL interpreter onsite.

Open Signal's immersive media programming is made possible through support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jackson Foundation.

This event is for current Open Signal members. Want to join our community? It's easy!
