At the AfricaBerlin Network event, which was hosted by Enpact, we presented a virtual reality experience of our recently concluded exhibition, ‘Interconnected'
Showcasing artworks from 9 African and 9 Middle Eastern artists in virtual space, the experience explored the various ways technological interventions and initiatives help us transcend borders, foster cross-cultural exchanges and connect with audiences in different regions of the world; while tackling questions of access, visibility and economic opportunities.
The VR Booth Display was part of an Enpact event bringing together African diplomatic delegations and young entrepreneurs. The experience featured a virtual and digital screen explorations of the exhibition and a dial in with Forme Femine's Curator, Charlene Chikezie.
Enpact set out to change the way international economic cooperation is being approached by giving direct support to the people doing the work
