Metaverse: Through the lenses of the imagination

An immersive experience

Venue: IE University

How can virtual reality enhance a cultural experience? The Immersive Learning department and the Division of Arts and Humanities at IE University have curated a series of experiences for the participants of this year's Hay Festival Segovia, in which you can experience virtual reality and its applications to education. Is there such a thing as an original text? Goretti González will guide us to an answer in her immersive masterclass for 30 people.

In this event, participants will be invited to explore literary texts through the lens of virtual reality. Professor Goretti González, PhD in Romance Languages and Literatures from Harvard University and a specialist in Humanities and Languages will challenge us with her question: Is there such a thing as an original text?

Throughout the day from 11am to 7pm, except during masterclass times, festival-goers will be able to explore the metaverse and visit the IE Virtual Gallery on Spatial.io. They can also take in the exhibition of the winning photographs from the 2022 IE Foundation Prize in Humanities.

Free Admission every 30 minutes. Up to 30 participants at a time (Except from 12:00 to 12:50)

Masterclass: 9 euros
