Real Stories

Welcome to Real Stories Virtual

With the looming uncertainty of COVID-19 the virtual gallery was built as an immersive experience that rewarded exploration and engagement. Hidden within are art pieces that contained triggers that expanded and offered more intimate insight. Others would invite patrons into the piece itself to further explore the emotional aspects of the student's story. Similar to building a relationship, the more time you invest, the more you will learn and appreciate about the individual.

Developed using Mozilla Hubs, Real Stories Virtual offered a unique, engaging, and accessible platform to  explore the intimate stories of our student champions. 


Navigating the Space:

The exhibit is split between three distinct spaces, The Entry Forum, The Galleries, and The Exit Forum.


The Entry Forum is designed to welcome visitors to the challenge of college homelessness and the history of the project. It is the first space you will experience and will be populated by a few glowing white figures. Each of these figures will have some form of engagement rather it be a survey, additional info, or a link to further support the project. The forum also includes the stories shared at our first in person installation. On the exterior wall, marked Galleries, you can access each of the individual student galleries. 

The Gallery is a unique exhibit built to reflect the individual stories of the students participating. Each will have a distinct feel and content. As with the entry forum, there will be unique points of engagement within some of the pieces. It will up to the curious visitor to find all the hidden interactions. As you progress through the installation, be weary of the opportunities to hear Que's words. 

The Exit Forum is the final space. Similar in look to the Entry Forum, The Exit Forum will give you an opportunity to reflect on your experience. In the exterior area a new piece will be present that will share the insights captured from previous visitors. Once you complete your journey and complete the survey imbedded in the glowing figure, you are free to exit the space.

An Update from the CoAct Team:

The platform used to develop Real Stories Virtual, Mozilla Hubs, closed service in May of 2024. Due to this, Real Stories Virtual is currently offline. We are currently exploring alternatives and will update our patrons when we have a tangible alternative. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you online soon!
