Mixed Reality Academy for the Arts

MiRAA is a web-based academy specializing in teaching immersive technologies in a cultural context for curators, artists, gallery owners and creative tech enthusiasts. Our courses are about creating VR and AR art, about distribution and pricing models for artists. We offer courses on sustainable use of new technologies in exhibitions, museums, art festivals, or galleries for curators.
