We helped bring BRCvr to life!
Each year, Burning Man welcomes thousands of camps to the Nevada desert, where a community of “burners” — like-minded artists, activists, change-makers and action-takers — build a temporary home together while embracing 10 principles.
Camps often consist of members who live scattered across a region or even across the world, and when they come together, they tell each other: “Welcome Home”
When COVID cancelled the 2020 in-person Burning Man event and regional burns, many people lost access to their communities. Sure, some began using Zoom to hold meetings online… But what zoom lacked was spatial presence — the contextualized, shared experience of chatting in a 3 dimensional reality. In 3D, a group of people can huddle together around a campfire to share stories, break off from the group to wander into solitude or carry out side chats (enabled by spatial audio), and adventure together to explore a world and the art within it.
In response to this need to connect, BRCvr was born and found a home in AltspaceVR. As existing users and creators within AltspaceVR, as well as regional burners ourselves, we were quickly connected with the team to help bring the vision for a virtual burning man to fruition.
BRCvr won multiple awards!
