Join us on February 3rd for the final showcase of work from Gray Area's first cohort of the Open Metaverse Intensive.

The Open Metaverse Intensive is a brand-new 10-week online course designed to empower and transform participants and players into citizens and developers of the interconnected virtual spaces where we work, play, and live.

Throughout the intensive, students have been creating original virtual reality (VR) immersive augmented reality (AR) 3D environments; each built from scratch using various digital creator tools and code frameworks--from blockchains to Blender.

Experience the rich vistas of the Open Metaverse with us ~ live and in-world on Spatial.io. Each of the artists will lead us on a guided tour of their spaces, followed by an afterparty with livestreamed DJ SIRHC.
