The first event of the VR Diversity Initiative has now opened applications to those who wish to attend the one day bootcamp at Digital Catapult in London on the 13th July, 2017.

The event is being sponsored by VRFocus and headed up by Catherine Allen, a VR producer and curator who has worked on producing the BBC’s first 360-degree talk show. The event will involve masterclasses from industry professionals along with a production workshop in which attendees will have the opportunity to create their own prototype project.

The VR Diversity Initiative is intended to be an opportunity for those who wish to become involved with the virtual reality (VR) industry, or those who want to incorporate VR into their existing work.

There is a limit of 35 places available for the July bootcamp event, so people who wish to attend will need to fill in an application form. Considering the aim of the event is geared towards improving diversity within the VR sector, it is considered to be vital that the opportunity is made available to those who would benefit most. With the aim of finding a balanced selection of participants from under-represented groups and backgrounds.

The event organisers will be looking for applicants who can demonstrate creative, technical or commercial potential along with an aspiration to work in the VR industry, but who have some level of experience within their current field.

The deadline for applications is 5:30pm 20th June, 2017.

The application form can be found HERE.
