How Paige Dansinger Created the First VR Museum

Creative technologies, such as virtual reality, have the incredible potential of building community. But how does it work exactly? And what can technology bring to the table that other mediums cannot? In this new episode of the Social PR Secrets Podcast, host Lisa Buyer talks to Paige Dansinger about her virtual museums and efforts to bring communities together through art and technology. They also explore how PR can disseminate these efforts into the world.  From games to virtual museums Paige started her career in the art industry, at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. When she quit her job, she knew she wanted to work with creative technologies, reaching new museum audiences through her phone.
