Civic XR Dev Jam

Saturday, April 13 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

RSVP / Register

BIG, the Public VR Lab and Boston VR are hosting a Civic XR Dev Jam and Community XR hackathon. The focus of this event is to create XR projects in the public interest, so come with your ideas for how you can use your powers of coding, producing, imagining, and creating for the public GOOD!

Volunteer mentors, hardware and coder experts, as well as 360 video production specialists, will be on hand to help you work as a team to create XR content for non-commercial civic engagement and public projects. Share your ideas with us, join a team, or just show up and create for humanity on a Saturday! Sign up to volunteer, mentor or participate here, and indicate the role you’d prefer.

If you’re new to XR or come from traditional media, this is a great opportunity to learn about the industry, emerging media for storytelling, journalism, and public projects, and join us in building Community XR, a new field that supports community-based VR/AR making, access to equipment, tools, and training for the public. We’ll start the day with a class and a hands-on workshop on both beginner and more advanced tracks.

Stay tuned for the class descriptions, and sign up to join us for a day of learning and sharing our VR/AR expertise!
