The immersive exhibition “War Up Close” at the World Affairs Council

On January 27, the “War Up Close” project was presented at the Norfolk Academy in the state of Virginia, USA, as part of a panel discussion on the future of NATO at the World Affairs Council.

The 38th meeting discussed, among other things, whether joining the alliance would guarantee security for new members or provoke further aggression from Russia. Among the speakers were professors from Old Dominion University, where we also held the exhibition in December, and from the local Joint Forces Staff College.

At the “War Up Close” booth, our team presented artifacts from the front lines and cardboard mock-ups, in which virtual reality allowed visitors to see the destruction of Ukrainian cities after Russian bombardments. Overall, about 50 guests attended the exhibition, mostly professors and professionals working in the field of NATO or international relations.
