Ethno Augmenting Social Realities
For this Lunchtime talk we are are joined by Imwen Eke, Camille Aubry & technologist Takita Bartlet who are developing tools for cultural relevance in physical and virtual conversations, with a focus on inclusion.
This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel
In this Lunchtime Talk we are joined by studio Residents Imwen Eke and Camille Aubry with technologist Takita Bartlet - collectively called Across the Room - to explore the role of digital tools in creating cultural relevance in both physical and virtual spaces - starting with the inclusion of Black African and Caribbean voices.
In this time of the pandemic, people are looking to technology to find more ways to connect, stay informed, commiserate and entertain themselves. This has the potential to redefine conversations and participatory experiences.
Motivated by the idea that we should all take a more intentional look at what we’re creating and how, Residents Imwen and Camille are joined by technologist Takita Bartlet and will be discussing how will interrogating new ways of developing digital facilitation tools that can be applied to virtual spaces, live events, training simulations, and entertainment solutions and exploring inclusively designed immersive/interactive experiences that appeal to new customer markets that the mainstream does not capture.
Join us on Fri 30th October, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
