Sensorium is an experiential studio working at the intersection of art, commerce, and technology.  The team focuses on original content and interactive design that push the boundaries of virtual reality, augmented reality, and other new media activations.  In 2018 they joined with Commonwealth Shakespeare Company and Google to produce Hamlet: Thy Father's Spirit, the longest narrative virtual reality experience to date.  Join co-founders Matthew Niederhauser and John Fitzgerald for an interactive virtual reality workshop that demonstrates for participants the equipment and processes that they use to create experiences like this one-from filming to editing to viewing.

Mónica Ramírez is a co-founder of Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, or the National Farmworkers Women's Alliance, and she created the first legal project in the U.S. focused on representing farmworker women in legal cases involving sexual harassment and other forms of gender discrimination. She has dedicated her life to ending gender-based violence and unjust treatment in the workplace, along with achieving gender justice, especially for the most marginalized women, including farmworkers, Latinas, and immigrants. Mónica rallies people from all walks of life to promote gender equity in the workplace and in politics - while inspiring audiences to find their own voice, forge their own leadership journey, and use their power to make change.

Producer Graham Sack is an award-winning screenwriter, director, and actor working in film, new media, and theater.  He recently teamed up with Commonwealth Shakespeare Company to produce Hamlet 360: Thy Father's Spirit which compresses Shakespeare's narrative to a 60-minute journey.  This groundbreaking work embraces virtual reality nativity to plunge the viewer into Hamlet's harrowing journey.  Graham will discuss the project and the implications virtual reality will have on conventional artistic media.

Since "Serial" debuted in 2014, there has been a sharp increase in the number and variety of podcasts available to consumers.  There are now multiple platforms through which creators can launch their work and a wide variety of mechanisms through which creators can make profits.  Furthermore, associated industries, such as conventions, consulting, and media about podcasts has blossomed.  This panel discussion, moderated by Arts and Humanities Division Senior Lecturer Kerry Rourke, brings to Babson three entrepreneurs and an analyst who have been successful in this dynamic landscape: Rebecca Lavoie and Kevin Flynn of Partners in Crime Media; Patrick Hinds of Theater Podcast Productions; and Nicholas Quah, creator of the Hot Pod industry newsletter.  Panelists will share their stories of moving from an idea to a media product, competing in this growing and changing industry landscape, and current and future trends in podcasting.
