Virtual Reality (VR) is no longer a technology for tomorrow. It is here today. Please join us for an interactive evening of hands-on technology demonstrations and a discusion of how VR is changing the way we tell stories and advocate for important causes, train our military, and prepare our children to compete in the global economy.
Join us during cocktail hour, when we’ll have a number of Virtual Reality experts on hand to demonstrate current technologies and applications. Experience 360 degree photography and virtual tours, or try out the Samsung Gear VR, the HTC Vive, or the Oculus Rift DK2. There will also be Google Cardboard VR glasses available for those who have yet to try them out!

This event is part of the Intersections in International Affairs series, hosted by the UW Master of Arts in Applied International Studies (MAAIS) in partnership with the World Affairs Council of Seattle, The Seattle Globalist, Crosscut, and Global Washington, and made possible with generous support from the Henry M. Jackson Foundation. These events are free and open to the public. They are designed to engage international affairs stakeholders in honest and provocative conversations about the work occurring at the intersections of government, business and philanthropy. And how we can do it better.
