The Indian Institute of Human Settlements (IIHS) is all set to host the seventh edition of City Scripts, an urban writing festival, from 20 May to 22 May.

Place of interest: At the festival, the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore will be setting up their virtual reality installation called The Infinite Library.

  • What is it: It’s a multisensory VR experience that explores the future of libraries. The experience will ask you to step into virtual caves and go see a whole new world. Designed as portals, the exhibit will let you travel time and space to truly take in the art.

Main focus: Each VR room a visitor can explore will have elements of South Indian puppetry, European alchemy and Polynesian navigation.

Even if the VR-ness of it all doesn’t take your fancy, the festival itself will feature several other exhibits and experiences to enrich your day!
