Are you curious to see how you can use VR and 360 video to create innovative stories and experiences? Then this is a weekend for you!

We believe that Your knowledge and competency, Your curiosity and urge to discover, and Your interest in storytelling will be needed in the future.

We want to be able to travel in time – we want to hear and see and experience story beyond the ordinary. We want to be moved and be immersed. You are the one that can make all that happen.

Together with a group of passionate and creative participant you will be given the chance to develop VR prototypes that use Bohus Fortress as inspiration on how to use new technology to tell historical stories. An experienced facilitator will guide you through an innovation process where you, as part of a team, will brainstorm an idea, experiment in building it, and discover new ways to solve creative problems. The process is what matters.

So join us for an intense and exciting weekend at Bohus Fortress, April 22-24, 2017.
