We want to tempt you to join us for Free coffee, cake, and VR Giggles, at a St Mary’s Cafe on 9 March.  This event is held by illuminart as part of the Re-Imagine Ageing Seniors Festival.

We invite you to experience a different world through Virtual Reality goggles, and tell us what you would like to see in a new creation.
We will shout you a complimentary drink and snack, help you take a VR test drive, and share ideas!
Please note there are only 5 places available at each venue so REGISTER NOW.

To register for one of our THURSDAY March 9 cafe meetings, please BOOK using the Event Brite ticketing system (links at left or below)

The VR taster is for Seniors in St Marys and the Penrith region. You can book for yourself and one other person.

This event is supported by Arts NSW, fusion, leep, Penrith City Council, UWS, Dlux media arts, Fusion Cafe, Harry’s Cafe, Cassandra’s Cafe and Tong Siam. For more info please visit our project home page.

More about us:

VR is set to take off in 2017 and illuminart wants to ensure that older people can influence what new content gets made. We also want to encourage senior people to have a chance to test drive technology with the help of tech savvy people, and for Queen Street Cafes to provide a fun alternative venue to experience the Virtual!

Satisfy your curiosity and test a Virtual Reality VR headset. Use your experience to help us to design tomorrows world today… and have a laugh with us as we tackle some of the issues involved in using VR Goggles!

It will be especially interesting for older people who aim to be empowered and up to date with technology, or who like thinking creatively. Illuminart are also interested to meet Seniors who think technology could be used for social good and betterment of the world. Our goal is to work with Seniors to bring the idea of creative ageing together with technological confidence and self expression.

We’d like you to be involved. Please book in to the workshops, join in the conversation or just prepare to be surprised at ‘pop up’ events on Queen Street.
