ABOUT THE CONVERSATION
The metaverse has become a popular topic of discussion within the tech community worldwide, and its proponents believe it will revolutionize the way we tell stories. Advancements in virtual reality, augmented reality, and other immersive technologies offer new frontiers for communication. In this panel, we will have conversations about the ways in which the metaverse can help reimagine storytelling and the challenges we may face along the way. Or is the idea of the metaverse– a space that has been termed as “embodied internet”–deserve criticism as one might argue that the concept of being “embodied” is highly attenuated in this context?
