MIP: VR Installation "Propagandarium" Opened in Odesa
On 13 August 2019, an interactive installation titled “Propagandarium” was opened in Odesa with the support of the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine.
“Propagandarium” is an interactive exhibition with VR elements that highlights examples of propaganda through text, visual art, audio, and video. The exhibition is designed to promote media literacy, combat disinformation, and fend off information aggression. It helps improve critical thinking skill and distinguish quality media content from manipulations and fakes.
In an unobtrusive and entertaining way, “Propagandarium” shows how important media literacy skills are. Visitors will be able to see a quaint “propaganda museum” and an interactive “media literacy room.”
The opening was attended by Gillian McCormack, Internews Director for Ukraine; Pavlo Kolotvin, head of the Institute of Political Information, an NGO; Daryna Dvornichenko, PhD in Political Sciences, media literacy expert; Kostiantyn Romashko, head of the analytics department at Internews Ukraine, an NGO; and Nataliia Rudenko, senior manager at Internews Ukraine.
The installation is open on all days except for Mondays, until August 31st, from 11:00am till 7:00pm.
The project supported by the Media Program in Ukraine, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Internews, an international organisation.
Earlier, on 23 May 2019, the Deputy Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine, Dmytro Zolotukhin, took part in the opening of “Propagandarium” in Kramatorsk.
