Metaverse: Through the lenses of the imagination

In the Eye of the Storm

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.

How to make collaborative decisions to help our planet? In the Eye of the Storm is a three-part immersive experience about climate change. The participant will undergo an emotional and alarming personal experience of a hurricane, using virtual reality goggles, learn about one of the five key decision-makers in the climate change conversation through multimedia material and prepare for a role-based discussion on climate action.

This masterclass for 30 participants will be given by Isabela del Alcázar and Gonzalo Delacámara, sustainability experts.

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 and 18:00 to 19:15, as masterclass are scheduled)

Masterclass: 9 euros
