Roles 4 Womxm are working in virtual reality spaces as a way to stay creative and connected during these challenging times. Our upcoming project incorporates scripts and stories by Canadian womxn writers with scripting and visuals created by programmers and digital designers. Stories will be brought to life in virtual reality as special mixed reality live events. These events will be live streamed via R4W’s Twitch Channel, and recorded and the results edited into finished pieces.
We are working within the social VR platform of Second Life to create new stories for the small screen. This project is in collaboration with the Odyssey Contemporary Art and Performance Simulators and the independent publishers, House of Zolo. This video is from a recent event on the Odyssey Simulator in Second Life — a reading from JE Solo’s debut novel, Phreak, with host Erika Steeves from House of Zolo.
