At a time when we know "video is everywhere", what does this mean for those who are exploring, remixing and engaging with video beyond marketing and advertising? How does video interplay with culture, the arts and news? Come hear from three very different speakers on how they are using a form of video to impact and expand our curiosity and understanding of the world; from The Whitney Museum, to an Award Winning VR and Gaming Studio and a journalist who re-imagines audio interviews into playful animations. Produced in Partnership with The Telly Awards.
