Brenda Romero is speaking at the following session/s


Wednesday 13th July: 15.00 - 15.45 Room 1

The world we live in, both physical and digital, is built on cultural and societal considerations. These considerations shape the meta verse and the possibility space of what it can become. In this talk, Brenda Romero asks who determines what those considerations are? What gets left out, and what gets brought in? Our metaverses are mirrors of their creators. This time time, let’s do it right.


  • Examine the history of the metaverse, what we’ve left out and what we brought in
  • Consider how inclusivity has impacted both the design and the audience of our previous metaverse attempts
  • Explore the ways in which we might do it differently to expand its audience.
