Diversity Exhibit

Leighton’s exhibit this year at AvatarFest is based on a region that was constructed as part of Leighton’s Masters course at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. The aim was to build a working example of virtual world educational experience.

The exhibit is split into two levels. On the ground floor there are various interactive activities videos, research papers and a quiz bot that can be found on the built region. Upstairs is an interactive time line for key LGBT moments in history.

On the back of the exhibit is a glossary game that was scripted by Aine Caoimhe. The aim of the game is to match the word with its definition. You can find more information about the project on the website here: https://ma.leighton-marjoram.online

There will be a landmark giver if you would like to visit the region via the hypergrid (HG).
