Walk in Another’s (Virtual) Shoes: Immersive Approaches to Restorative Storytelling Through VR, AR and Comics

How can storytellers use cutting-edge technologies such as virtual and augmented reality to share important stories of reconciliation, or foster a restorative dialogue? How can these practices be incorporated into current modes of mediation? What are the technical, financial and logistical barriers to implementing these practices? Through a selection of case studies, Dan Archer will highlight both the advantages and challenges of this approach, also drawing on his current work as an Images and Voices of Hope Fellow as well as a Tow Center fellow at Columbia University where he is investigating the links between 360 video and empathy generation in audiences.
