Hack the Mills: Virtual Architects (Open House Festival)

4th September 2021, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


You’re Invited to Hack the Mills: Virtual Architects (Open House Festival)

This year, as part of Open House, children and young people are invited to re-design the Millennium Mills using Virtual Reality (VR) technology!

Using 360 degree images of the Mills and 3D design software, children and families will have the opportunity to augment and layer their ideas of the past, present and future of the site. They can then take their own tour and explore their re-design through virtual reality!

Participants will be gifted a free cardboard VR headset to take home, to continue exploring.

Please note this activity must be booked as there are limited spaces. We are also running a drop in activity – Hack the Mills: Sculpting Paper Cities.
