Arrival VR is the first nationally co-created XR storytelling project gathering and curating immigration/migration stories of Americans [pre-1620 through 2019] and incorporating them into a visual XR/VR immersive timeline. Read a few of their stories here.
The project will offer an XR experience, a field guide, training, and tools for the project's installation, a participatory mobile studio, and curriculum for arts, film festivals, and cultural host-organizations to facilitate civic dialogue on "what it means to be American" as part of the exhibit.
