3 x AR Workshop
29th April - 27th May


Selected students will have a unique opportunity to be trained in Lens Studio, Snap software that enables users to create Augmented Reality lens (filters) for Snapchat.


In these workshops, students will be guided by experts and have a chance to make their own Lens that must incorporate and develop empathy in the user of that lens. The workshop mentors will guide students through the technical aspects of making a lens as well as helping students think of the user-experience. All whilst remembering the aim of creating a lens that can increase empathy in the user - pretty cool right?
