What if you could step into someone else’s shoes? Experience the world from their vantage point? E4 Youth students learn to create or remix virtual reality tours of their neighborhoods to spread cultural competency, build empathy and expand minds. Creative youth store the cultural content they capture on Permanent.org and utilize WebVR technology to bring their stories to life.
E4 Youth has struggled with the sheer volume of content their students create and the software they were using limited their access to their students’ files.
Permanent.org was able to provide E4 Youth with a Permanent Archive to not only store vital files and projects but also to display and host these projects for the world to see.
E4 YOUTH works with young adults in underserved communities to teach creative job skills and provide access to employment opportunities in the creative sector. Students in schools that lacked the curriculum required to make them competitive players in coveted industries now have access to after-school programs where they learn how to design, write code and even create virtual reality applications.
