XR Mentorship Program

July 25, 2022

Screen Queensland and Screenworks will support two Far North and/or North Queensland-based practitioners to participate in the XR Mentorship Program.

The program will offer two practitioners interested in the XR sector to be mentored by one of two industry professionals via two zoom sessions, before being supported with travel to Brisbane for an expenses-paid working week where they will shadow their mentor and engage with the industry in a professional capacity.
