An interactive and creative virtual reality workshop introducing the exciting world of virtual reality.

Virtual reality has become a vibrant industry for gaming and entertainment, but it is also a platform of endless possibilities for education, training, therapy and more.

Digital designer and VR artist Orla Casey will guide participants through an interactive lecture on the history of virtual reality, as well as the the free gaming engines available online for those who would like to have a go developing their own virtual reality for themselves. Participants will not only get to make a basic VR environment during the workshop, they will also have the chance to try out Orla’s own mindfulness-inspired virtual-reality experience, ‘Finding Space’, which she developed to help support people’s mental health and wellbeing.
