Oculus has announced that applications are open for its VR for Good Creators Lab program, now in its third year in a row, in an effort to bring together content creators and nonprofit organizations to produce meaningful immersive experiences that leverage the power of virtual reality to inspire the need for positive social change.
Content creators and nonprofits across the world are encouraged to apply now through April 6th. Selected participants will join Oculus in California from June 6th–8th for a two-day summit that will feature workshops, brainstorming sessions, mentoring, and community building.
Since its launch in 2016, the Creators Lab program has worked with rising VR filmmakers and various nonprofit organizations to highlight and spread global awareness on important issues that have an impact on society ranging from human trafficking, domestic abuse, marine conservation efforts, and justice reform—just to name a few. Many of these projects have also been showcased at major film festivals such as Sundance, SXSW, and Tribeca.
If you’re a content creator with a story that could benefit from being told in virtual reality, either to help spread awareness of the need for social change or for a worthwhile nonprofit cause, then apply to the Creators Labs today.
