360 Vision Development Initiative for the Arts

This initiative enabled artists and cultural practitioners to explore and develop skills in this new field. In collaboration with VR innovators, the artists developed and extend their audiences through the creation of new immersive VR content. In 2017 funding was made available for a range of NSW based practitioners working across diverse practices; including visual arts, theatre, dance, music, literature, and/or museum practices.
