PHI Librairie VR Cover

Presentation

PHI is putting its internationally recognized expertise to work by presenting the initiative of a free VR Library, accessible by appointment, exclusively for creators, artists and industry professionals, providing free access to a variety of works to inspire, enrich knowledge and provide tools for creation.

The growth of immersive experience production at the crossroads of art and new technologies is reaching more and more cultural enterprises and artist collectives. However, the lack of accessibility of virtual reality projects hinders the creativity and development of creators wishing to engage in the production of innovative projects.

Please note that the VR Library takes place at the PHI Centre and that consultations of works are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fill out the form to request an appointment.
