Panel: The Magic of Imagination – Les Tablettistes 2017
It’s my pleasure to run the panel Under the Spell of Possibility: The Magic of Imagination during the Event Les Tablettistes on January 6th 2017, at the Cité collégiale of Ottawa in Canada.

Innovative content creators are doing just that, imagining new environments to immerse us in a world of their own creation.
