VRTogether Launches Today

VRTogether, a non-profit initiative, has launched its platform to encourage VR for the greater good. Rather than finance projects - in the first initiative of its kind - VRTogether brings together a community of people to leverage this powerful medium to effect change.

Via the website, which has similar functionality to a social network, people can connect and engage with each other. Organisations and individuals looking for production studios, research partners, ideas or advice will be able to post their work and those with the expertise needed can offer help. By working together, these important projects can become a reality.


Whales And Dolphins

The platform launches with a live project from Speaking about the project, Chris Butler-Stroud, Chief Executive at WDC said, “VR is a great tool to get the public involved and brings us a step closer to stopping whale and dolphin captivity for good. By signing up to VRTogether, you can help us to make a real change through technology.”


People Power

VRTogether’s Board of Advisors includes Nonny de la Peña, CEO of Emblematic Group and fondly referred to as ‘the Godmother of Virtual Reality’; Mária Rakušanová, Director of VR and New Media at Raindance Film Festival; Catherine Day, Head of AR/VR at m ss ng p eces and Sol Rogers, CEO/Founder of REWIND.

Daryl Atkins, Founder of VRTogether and Creative Director at REWIND urges people to get involved, “The stories that need telling the most are often the most difficult to get off the ground. We felt that amongst the day-to-day commercial projects that helped create the industry, we had a social responsibility to give something back to the wider community. We’re asking people to invest a little time to create content which has the power to make a difference. The infrastructure has been built, now it needs to be populated.”
