Building the world you want to see | LGBTQ+ VR Museum | Antonia Forster

Video (3:08): Antonia Forster talks about her virtual reality LGBTQ+ museum.

“Antonia Forster used her knowledge of augmented and virtual reality to create the world’s first LGBTQ+ VR museum. The digital space is a powerful example of immersive storytelling and is built around a virtual collection of artworks, objects, and stories from the LGBTQ+ community.

While working with Antonia to host the museum in a physical space in London, we caught up with her to find out more about her journey into the world of augmented reality (spoiler – it starts with penguins…), what true representation means to her and how technology can be used as a way of achieving it.”
