Through these meetups, we aim at connecting women and gender-marginalized people from Canada and Europe working in the creative industries and around immersive technologies to create new international connections and foster potential cooperation.
Each meetup takes on a different focus and highlights three inspiring persons from Europe and Canada, all working at the intersection of technology, art and media giving enough space for short presentations and the possibility to network in a safe and fun virtual environment.
