‘ESCAPE SERIES’ – AN IMMERSIVE 360° EXPERIENCE
During the past 6 weeks; from Feb. 18th to Mar. 25th, 2021, Seniors and supporters of NYSC attended ‘ESCAPE’, a series of three hybrid fundraising events that took our guests on a trip to Maui, Hawaii (Feb. 18), Negril, Jamaica (Mar. 11), and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Mar. 25).
Our guests packed their suitcases and flew from their beds to the kitchen’s chair, where they hopped on these hybrid special events that delivered a bag of goods to their doorstep while being transmitted over Zoom. Every attendee grabbed their beach towel, wore colourful shirts or blouses, and sang and danced to Samba, Reggae, and traditional Hawaiian music. All of this while enjoying the unique traditional treats each event brought to their house; local beverages, and mouthwatering cuisine.
In every edition, Bethany, Supervisor at NYSC’s Active Living Centre, hosted a special guest among which there were, Perla Lima and Renan Passatore, from Brazil; and Bevon Boothe, from Jamaica; together, they all talked about music, dancing, food, cultural celebrations and curiosities of these beautiful destinations and their culture.
Each event included a live-streamed preparation of a unique local beverage, which our guests tasted while taking part in a 360° immersive virtual tour experience thanks to 4K & 360° video technologies. Finally, games, entertainment, and special prices were all part of the agenda.
NYSC takes this opportunity to thank all of ESCAPE’s attendees for your support. We hope to see you soon at another of our new hybrid events.
