Hi, we are 9th and 10th graders at Cushman High School in Miami, FL. We are taking an elective class called “Before It’s Too Late Internship” where we work in teams to produce and market virtual reality films and prototypes to motivate urgency on local climate issues. We have the exciting opportunity to feature our class VR projects at Art Miami Fair, a fair that draws thousands of people from all over the city and country. Furthermore, our VR projects have been accepted to be featured in the Miami Dade Public Libraries next year. We need financial support, so we can leverage these opportunity to spread our mission!
We are raising $5,000 by December 1 to pay for the opportunity to exhibit at Art Miami Fair:
•Art Miami exhibit space and setup – $2,500
•Two Samsung Gear S7 VR phones for exhibit – $900
250 cardboard VR viewers for promotional giveaway – $1,400
SAVE THE DATE Dec 5 -10 Art Miami Fair at NE 14th St on Biscayne Bay
Our VR projects will be featured within the “Deep See” exhibit, a shipping container village featuring a collection of local artists’ work that shed light on the impacts of sea level rise. Our projects are:
“Miami Rising To Fight Climate Change” - 360 short films about real communities in Miami that are already addressing climate change - solar business, vulnerable and faith communities. We delve into these communities’ attitudes about the issue, solutions and hopes for the future.
“Miami Year 2050” - VR prototypes of immersive 3-D renderings for places in Miami as we imagine them to be in the future.
