Immerse 2018

Learn, connect and be inspired

Last year over 100 Sunshine Coast creatives came to Immerse to be inspired by the storytelling potential of immersive technologies. This year, over 2 days of intensive masterclasses presented by world-leading experts, you'll learn the hands-on skills for incorporating AR and VR into your practice.

Immerse is again being hosted at the fantastic Learning Hub at St Andrew's and attendees have the option of two streams, one focused on incorporating Augmented Reality into visual art and the other about using Virtual Reality tools and technology to create immersive stories.

Immerse 2018 offers amazing value thanks to funding support from our partners. In addition to learning hands-on skills from world class practitioners and teaching assistants over two intensive days, your event ticket includes delicious catered lunches on both days. As an added bonus, you also get an invitation to the Immerse networking party on the Noosa river on Saturday evening ($40pp).
