What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Behind the Scenes: Art as a regenerative force
April 15, 8:00am - 9:30am CDT. Hosted at Native Hostel
About this FieldTrip
Here’s an incentive to get your taxes done this week! You’ll want to join us on tax day for a special super-sized FieldTrip hosted by Guayakí Yerba Mate. We’ll be taking a private tour and get a behind-the-scenes look at their installation at Native Hostel.
Come join your fellow morning people for a behind the scenes tour of I AM THIS, an immersive VR experience, part of Guayakí Yerba Mate’s month-long event series in Austin this April - Come To Life: Austin.
Projected on an 18ft dome, “I Am This” envelops the viewer in a 360-degree universe of stunning visuals and animations. Filmmaker Cyrus Sutton will be taking this extended 20-minute version of this film on tour to Austin, NYC, LA and Burning Man in 2019, with Austin being the premiere of this experiential event. One engages even before entering the dome with an interactive rainforest created by artist Milecee I’anson. She is known for her hand-coded ‘aesthetic sonification’ system, interactive sculptures and plant bio-feedback.
The morning will consist of experiencing the full event together followed by a group conversation with the local creatives behind the design, including the filmmaker and Guayakí’s events team. We will go in depth about the vision and intention behind this art installation as part of Guayakí Yerba Mate’s month-long Austin Campaign.
Ditch your coffee that morning, and enjoy complimentary Nitro Mate on tap.
