Client:  Cornerstone Partnership

Product:  6 metre dome

Location:  London  

Assignment:  Foster Carer and Adoption Recruitment

Date:  2017

The Cornerstone Partnership, a social enterprise that seeks to improve the life chances of children in care, is one of several NGOs using Igloo shared VR to engage audiences with highly emotive content.

As part of its drive to recruit more foster carers, Cornerstone enlisted a 6-metre Igloo at an event in London's City Hall. The aim was to help people understand how trauma and abuse can affect a child's development.

By using both VR headsets and Igloo shared VR, guests were better able to empathise with traumatised children, and got a visceral understanding of the role of good parenting. The content was created by VR and 360 specialists VISYON.

“One of the key benefits you get from a dome is the physical immersion into what is already a very emotive story.  That doubling-up of emotions brings a real sense of believing.”

Pere Perez, CEO, VISYON
