The first annual 360 Afrika Forum is coming to you with an AR/VR Africa Hackathon not to be missed out on. Calling all artists, writers, creatives, hackers, filmmakers, activists and entrepreneurs to partake in this great hackathon dubbed ‘Creating Our Future.’
The hackathon will be taking place in 7 countries over 48 hours with a total of 35 participants and Nairobi Garage is proud to be one of the hosts here in Nairobi.
AR/VR Africa is a pan African community made up of extended reality creators and enthusiasts committed to leveraging XR to create solutions to problems faced in the community.
360 Afrika is an initiative that seeks to make access to story technologies through the building of bridges, creating community and promoting diversity around this goal. This is done through various forms such as hackathons, festivals, discussions and screenings as a way to increase the number of projects as well as raise awareness around the potential for VR/AR and other emerging technologies.
The main purpose of this hackathon is to build a community that supports democratizing access to emerging story technologies. Through this forum, the next generation will be inspired to create solutions and stories consumable to everybody.
The focus this year is on the virtual reality and its potential in East Africa.
