Meet the Makers of GONDWANA VR

2pm - 2:45pm

Blending innovative VR technology, filmmaking wizardry, and a compelling environmental message backed by climate data, GONDWANA VR: The Exhibition brings the world’s oldest tropical rainforest to life right here at the South Australian Museum.

Help your students explore the deeper messages and themes behind this world-first experience in a special Q&A with GONDWANA VR creators Ben Joseph Andrews and Emma Roberts.

Ben and Emma will share insights into how they spent five months living off-grid in the World Heritage-listed Daintree and Wet Tropics, working in collaboration with Traditional Owners and scientists to create a unique open-play digital rainforest.

Student questions can be submitted at education@samuseum.sa.edu.au and can also be asked during the live event via the chat.
