    What we're about

    VanVR (The Vancouver VR Community) is the best in the west inclusive virtual reality collective comprised of VR enthusiasts, evangelists, and creators. We invite folks of all different levels and interests. Our goal is to share our work and thoughts, actively promote diversity, and to create an enriched discourse on VR, making Vancouver a premiere flagship virtual reality hub in Canada.

    In 2018, The Vancouver VR Community merged with the VanVR Meetup. VanVR was established in 2013, and introduced technical workshops and socials around VR - this Meetup started it all, and we are so excited to bring two specialized and diverse teams together.
