We will also be broadcasting this online.

This workshop is organized by Another Reality is one of the first workshops we will be having as we plan to have a weekly program covering Virtual Reality for art. We plan to have a weekly curriculum dedicated to teaching Virtual Reality for creative purposes. Which is why we will be launching on Kickstarter.

Future classes we plan to have include:

Virtual Reality for DJ Training

Virtual Reality for Making Music

Virtual Reality for Animation

We plan to go on Kickstarter to hire more instructors, to get more Oculus Quest headsets so we can bring workshops to schools, and so we can be able to offer downloadable courses for those not in Canada.
