An Immerse Response

I had a opportunity to write a short essay for Immerse, a website promoting creative discussions about emerging nonfiction storytelling. I met the editor, Jessica Clark at the National Black Programming Consortium’s 360 2.0 Bootcamp in September 2016 when I was an NBPC 360 fellow. Jessica came in to talk to us about developing a media engagement strategy for our projects.

Note from the editor
How are we telling stories about the world today — and why? Immerse will publish one in-depth article per month, along with responses to the piece, and roundups of relevant events and publications. With a critical eye, we’ll cover an array of topics: virtual reality, immersive installations, participatory storytelling experiments, nonfiction games, and more. We are concerned with serious questions about the ethics, impact, and implications of emerging forms. But also we hope to have fun, surprise you, and also surprise ourselves along the way. Immerse is an initiative of Tribeca Film Institute, MIT Open DocLab and The Fledgling Fund. It is supported by The Fledgling Fund and MacArthur Foundation.
