Virtual Reality Exhibition: NSAF (Neurospeculative Afrofeminism) on Oculus Go

VR is the immersive platform that transports our viewers into a NeuroCosmetology lab, a reimagined black hair salon, placing the viewer into a black woman's body giving a glimpse into a speculative future of black women pioneering brain research and neuromodulation through the culturally specific ritual of haircare. NSAF has been shown at Sundance Film Fest, SXSW, Tribeca Film Fest (Jury Honorable Mention), Gray Area Art & Technology Festival, Primer Speculative Futures Conference, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Stony Island Arts Bank & Rebuild Foundation, New Inc: Versions Festival, Refinery 29's 29 Rooms. 

A presentation by students in the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication's "VR Storytelling" course.

(related exhibit taking place the day prior to Day of Dialogue) 

Day of Dialogue is a day of workshops, panels, screenings and performances devoted to deliberation and reflection on some of the major issues that face our community, our nation, and the world. This year's theme "Born Free and Equal" is inspired by the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, "a milestone document in the history of human rights" according to the United Nations. 

This all-day annual event presented by Hofstra's Center for Civic Engagement serves as an important forum for community engagement and participation. Students, faculty and community members are welcome.
