Leo Kellgren-Parker

Founder
LIVR
UK

Leo Kellgren-Parker is the founder of LIVR, a virtual reality content platform dedicated to theatre. Coming from a theatre family, Leo was immersed in the industry from an early age. Prior to founding LIVR; he worked in marketing and communications for global brands such as Yahoo!, Diageo, Shell and Sony, as well as a host of tech start-ups. It was during this time he developed a passion for new digital technologies and the possibilities of the rapidly growing area of VR. VR has the power to transport people to any location to enjoy experiences as if they were there, but all from the comfort of their own home. VR can take live performances to whole new audiences wherever they are. It offers a solution to those who may not be able to see a show due to geography, time, or ticket availability. The aim of LIVR is to use this emerging technology to make performing arts more accessible to everyone, everywhere.
