As part of the free day-time program MUTEK.JP brings the first edition of the VR Salon to Tokyo. The VR Salon offers various activities to the public and professionals interested in exploring the medium of Virtual (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR). The activities include two panels on the future of VR creation and the Japanese VR industry in a global context, workshops on VR Creation as well as a VR exhibition addressed to the general public.

The VR Salon was originally developed by MUTEK and it’s partners in Montreal in order to bring together artists, developers, VR producers and professionals to share their experiences and build bridges to other creative digital disciplines. Through introducing new audiences to the new world of VR, AR and MR, the VR Salon further seeks to accelerate the process of adoption of these new media.

All activities of the day time program are held at Miraikan – The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation and are free of charge.
