360º video produced in the "Immersive Storytelling and Digital Citizenship" one day hackathon @ Creative Colab 2017 (https://www.facebook.com/creativecolab.up/) Project description: Immersive media experiences are defined by the feeling of "being there". Therefore, these innovative experiences encompass a huge potential as means to trigger awareness about critical problems in the world. In this sense, immersive media can truly act as an empathy machine, portraying key social and cultural issues in a way that it becomes tools for changing people's mindsets, by leading them to familiarize with selected cultural characteristics, history, values, belief systems, and behaviors of members of other groups. The main goal of this one day hackathon is to gather a group of people with interdisciplinary skills, that combined may generate fresh insights and a quick turn-around project about immersive storytelling in relation to digital citizenship. Sharing ideas, challenges and solutions, ranging from content creation to content consumption, the participants - guided by digital journalist Thomas Seymat (Euronews) and inspired by Alexandre Gomes’s insights on the main struggles and challenges rede ex aequo and Portuguese LGBTI youth face today - will explore the quickly changing landscape of this new storytelling paradigm by creating a short 360°, immersive story.
