29Rooms, the immersive pop-up exhibit, is back for its second year in Los Angeles, and this year it will be located at The Reef LA for just 5 days from December 5th to 9th. And as you can guess, there will be 29 immersive spaces, and LA guests will get to experience 13 new experiences. Refinery29, the beauty and lifestyle website for young women, has collaborated with different artists to transport you into colorful and interactive worlds that touch on art, activism, style, and technology.

New collaborations for the “Expand Your Reality” immersive tour include Kesha, Lena Waithe, GLAAD & The Trans Chorus of Los Angeles. They join previous collaborators like Nicole Richie, ACLU, Carlota Guerrero, and Rupi Kaur. In addition, 29Rooms has teamed up with Amazon Prime Video’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Pantene, Plan B One-Step, and SMIRNOFF.

Nerd Reactor had the chance to check out the rooms during the preview event, and we had a lot of fun taking photos inside the beautiful spaces. The interactive areas will definitely take you out of your comfort zone as you read palms from strangers in the Blind Date with Destiny room and answer and ask questions in the 29 Questions room.
