11.30am – 12.30pm          Keynote Speech: Simon Wilkinson, “Virtual Reality as a Punk Moment”

Virtual Reality arrives at an interesting time in terms of how culture is made and consumed. Audience trends show a dramatic shift away from the passive and linear to greater and more meaningful interactivity. Free software and access to education allow individuals to more easily become self-producers of content across multiple platforms. Huge changes are upon us! In many ways, VR is part of an ultimate punk moment, a democratisation of media where anyone willing to take the journey can start telling their story in a powerfully immersive way.
