VR Remix Parties
VR Remix Parties are community events that bring together educators, coders, creative professionals and youth to tell immersive stories about neighborhoods.
Founded by Carl Settles in 2018, in the events, led by Creative Mentors, students earn digital badges as they research neighborhoods and develop panel reviewed digital assets i.e. oral histories, music, recordings, 360/2D images, videos and immersive content that explore a city's cultural roots. Based on the quality of that content, students earn rewards that include access to industry events, production gear, job shadow and internship opportunities.
VR Remix Parties serve as a showcase for this content and an opportunity for community stakeholders to share and learn about practical applications for immersive tools.
