Start a Kaleidoscope Community in your city to bring local VR Creators together to explore the art and science of virtual reality. As the founder and director of a new community you will be responsible for organizing quarterly showcases, scouting local VR talent, and securing sponsors and exhibitors. Being a Community Director is an incredible experience, but it will take a lot of work and dedication so it’s important that you’re ready to make the commitment.
NEW COMMUNITY APPILICATION
The rules outlined below are mandatory, non-negotiable, and designed to maintain the quality, integrity, and vision of your Kaleidoscope Community.
Each Community is run by a local Community Director with the following responsibilities, obligations, and benefits:
▶ Organize & produce one Showcase event per quarter.
▶ Program VR creators to demo & speak at quarterly Showcases.
▶ Secure sponsors, exhibitors, and volunteer staff.
▶ Secure venue, furniture, and audio/visual equipment.
▶ Be the public face of your Kaleidoscope community.
▶ Speaking opportunities at international Kaleidoscope events.
▶ After production costs are recouped all money from ticket sales and sponsorship are split 50/50 between Kaleidoscope and the Community Director. Kaleidoscope reinvests its share of profit into future events and encourages Community Directors to do the same.
A Community Showcase must be organized each quarter and adhere to the following guidelines:
▶ Each Showcase begins with 45 minutes of presentations by local VR Creators, followed by three hours of VR demos and professional networking.
▶ Using the Wevr Transport app, Kaleidoscope will provide an Official Selection of VR experiences that must be loaded onto all VR demo stations.
▶ Local VR Creators, selected in advance by the Community Director, may exhibit any new work or work-in-progress provided they bring their own VR demo station(s) preloaded with the Official Selection.
▶ Ticket prices are between $5 and $50 USD, depending on the city and quality of event.
▶ We do not allow co-branding of Community Showcases.
▶ Community Showcases are stand-alone events and may not be combined with any pre-existing conference or event.
