Journalism 360–an initiative from Knight Foundation and Google News Initiative to accelerate immersive storytelling in news–has announced it will be holding its inaugural Journalism 360 Unconference July 24 and 25 in New York.
The goal of the conference is to “connect creators, producers, newsroom leaders, and technologists” in the immersive storytelling space, with a specific focus on applying virtual, augmented and mixed reality technology within newsrooms.
The event will begin Tuesday, July 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. with demonstrations of the 2017 Journalism 360 Challenge winners, including immersive projects from The Washington Post, USA Today, MIT and Northwestern University, to name a few.
On July 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the “conference” will begin, with a full day of programming regarding immersive storytelling in journalism. The event will include break out sessions and “lightning talks” on topics chosen during the evening of July 24.
Registration for the Journalism 360 Unconference is $35, and includes a complimentary ticket to the demos on Tuesday and a light breakfast and lunch on the 25th.
