Virtual reality (VR) holds special promise for investigative journalism. Its ability to immerse readers in a unique environment can take our audiences to new places and new experiences. In this special session, join us for a VR workshop. There will be free Google Cardboard viewers available for Uncovering Asia participants to experience VR first-hand.

Qiu Jiaqiu of China's innovative Caixin will present VR stories his team has produced. 
The Google team will share perspectives on new VR content strategies and approaches to reaching mobile audiences, data research and visualization tools, and innovative storytelling formats through 360 video on YouTube and virtual reality with Google Cardboard.

Google News Lab is a global project aimed at supporting quality journalism through education, training, and innovative digital and mobile tools. Since its launch earlier in 2015, the Google News Lab has partnered with news organisations to map the world’s response to the Nepalese earthquake, unearthed which fashion trends people really care about in the US, detected hints of a Conservative Party victory in the Britain’s election, and tracked the ups and downs of the US’s wild primary season.
