Our upcoming newsrewired event is an exciting three weeks away, promising to be a jammed-packed day of practical learning through a mix of panels, workshops and spotlight talks.

The conference, which takes place on 22 November at Reuters in London, will see expert speakers discuss topics ranging from open-source tools for journalists to collaboration in the newsroom, and today we are please to add immersive storytelling to the list.

Virtual reality and 360-degree video has successfully arrived in newsrooms as a great way for publishers to engage audiences in a new way, transporting them to the centre of the story.

This immersive way of storytelling has seen the Guardian show viewers what it’s like to be in solitary confinement, how asylum seekers feel in the UK, and why parental interaction with a baby is so crucial in the first six months of its life.

In a workshop at newsrewired, Nicole Jackson, deputy editor, virtual reality, the Guardian, will talk through the publisher’s numerous award-winning VR projects, discussing how they have been creative with the 360-degree space, using various techniques from CGI to 3D scanning technology.
