We partnered with Act One, a nonprofit organization that provides arts field trips to children in Arizona to expand their offering in a completely new and exciting way using Virtual Reality. The result of our work together is a first of its kind technology and a compelling piece of content that captures the heart and humanity of art making.
During an incredibly difficult time for educators and students, we wanted to harness the power of VR to transport kids somewhere wonderful and inspiring - even if they couldn’t leave the classroom. The feeling of a magic school bus that could take you anywhere in the world to see art and hear music and stories from artists who were also relatable and could look them in the eye while telling them how and why art was so important.
This is so much more than walking into a classroom with a box of VR headsets. This is a true group experience that is designed to be easy for teachers and students. With our Borderless technology, a teacher can control every headset in the room individually and as a group- deploying experiences and tailoring preferences for the specific needs of every child.
While one continuous story runs through our field trip, it is broken down into digestible chapters and interspersed with opportunities for in-person conversation. We work to build lesson plans that enhance and extend the field trip.
With ActOne Arts Immersions, anything is possible with art, virtual reality and the desire to explore and learn.
