Virtual reality Syria

18:00 - 20:00

From Belfast to war-torn Aleppo via VR headsets

Transport yourself from Belfast to the devastated streets of war-torn Aleppo in Syria.

Many of us might think we know what's been happening in Syrian cities like Aleppo, but viewing these apocalyptic scenes from 360-degrees with Amnesty's virtual reality headsets provides a new level of understanding and empathy.

Using 3D photographs and audio captured by Syrian citizen journalists, who have been documenting the destruction caused by barrel bombing and other attacks on the besieged city of Aleppo.

During the five years of the Syrian crisis Amnesty has been amassing evidence of widespread human rights violations - including war crimes and crimes against humanity - and the Aleppo images form part of the organisation's ongoing efforts.
