To celebrate 15 months of fruitful collaboration and the refined features of 360/VR storytelling platform Fader/VRAppr, Deutsche Welle, Euronews, and Vragments released two new Fader stories in Berlin last week. The pieces called “Copenhageners” and “remembrance is real” premiered at VR Pop 18, an immersive storytelling workshop and meeting hosted by the consortium during re:publica.

When? September 11th – 15th (Pop-up Week), September 22nd (Conference)
What is it?
VR Pop-up Week = seven days full of virtual reality madness in the heart of Kreuzberg. There will be (spontaneous) workshops, showcases, beer, and nerd talk. VR Pop-up Week is very informal and free of charge. This is a VR playground.
VR Conference = a one day event that brings together all kinds of VR enthusiasts (journalists, storytellers, media innovators, techies) to share experiences and seek inspiration. This is much more structured and focused, and you will need to purchase a ticket.
