Native American Youth Virtual Reality Workshop
March 7 @ 5:00 pm - March 17 @ 7:00 pm
The Native American Youth Virtual Reality Workshop launched with tribes in Colorado and Utah!
The week long interactive and educational workshop introduced the Oculus for indigenous teens and youth. The goal is to encourage Native American youth to explore careers in virtual reality.
The workshop collaborated with the following tribes and Native-led organizations to host the new initiative.
Check out Ute Youth from Towaoc, CO and White Mesa, Utah during our workshop March 7th – 14th, 2022.
Our next workshop takes place in April at United America Indian Involvement, Inc.
The workshop offers a fun, career building experience working with virtual reality apps, games and resources. The program gives each participant an opportunity to work with VR Oculus headsets, use applications in the virtual environment, and be inspired to explore careers in VR.
Great thanks to our supporters META, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, National Endowment for the Arts and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
