Impossible Courage is an experience that uses virtual reality to place people in the shoes of lives we otherwise couldn’t imagine. It is based on the asylum seekers leaving from Northern Africa to enter Europe through Italy. The goal is to help people in the Western world empathize with the large number of people seeking safety at their borders, across the cultural divide. The project seeks to shift the conversation, making it come from a point of understanding rather than a point of fear.
