2021 is the second year that Educators in VR has participated and produced the Halloween event in AltspaceVR, this year called “Halloween Fright Night.” The event begins in a haunted mansion, and we guarantee that you will get lost looking for teleporters that take you to some of the most scary and fun worlds in AltspaceVR.
UPDATED WITH NEW EVENTS
Educators in VR is looking for worlds and volunteers we call “scarers” to help us create this magical, mysterious, and haunting experience. To sign up and help, use our Halloween Volunteer and World form and our ghostly events team will contact you.
We are meeting Tuesday, October 12, in AltspaceVR for a Halloween 2021 Prep & Plan discussion to discuss the Halloween event and what’s involved.
The World Building Tours hosts events every Wednesday and this week will feature the popular Halloween Haunted Maze worlds from 2018, ground-breaking hand-crafted worlds for the first Halloween community event in AltspaceVR, followed by tours on October 13, October 21, and October 27 of other scary, haunted worlds in AltspaceVR to inspire you to build your own and keep the holiday haunting spirits alive.
Volunteers: We need volunteers willing to help moderate and scare the dickens out of visitors in various worlds during the events the last two weeks of October. You may change your avatar to be more scary or to match the world selected for you to haunt. As a scarer, your job is to moderate and move the visitors through the world to maintain the pace of the event, and add some thrill to the experience. We’ll be hosting training sessions to teach you all you need to scare in VR, though most of you are likely already experts.
Training events to help you get your scare on and support these community events include:
World Builders: We are looking for worlds to add to the event space, the haunted mansion. Educators in VR Event Team members will be given admin access to your world to add volunteer scarers and work with you to add the teleporter to the event world and help the scarers learn how to scare in your world. The requirements and specifications are in the Halloween Volunteer and World form. The deadline for world submissions is October 20.
This collaborative AltspaceVR community event is a partnership with the World Building Tours and Mark’s News & Updates. It take a village to make these community events happen, and we’d love to have your creative spirits join us…ooooooooooooooooo
