Feedback form is now closed.
If Detroit black youth could create virtual reality experiences, what kind of impact could they make? We will use the immersive power of VR to tell a personal story. We will use phones to create our soundtrack and 360° visuals, then use a free program to develop our VR experience. Participants will leave with the inspiration, knowledge, and resources to continue creating compelling VR on their own. Geared towards participants between the ages of 15 - 21.
