  • Augmented reality for rookies
    Saturday 29 April 2017
  • Book now

    The recent Pokemon Go craze has finally brought augmented reality to the mainstream. No longer the realm of sci-fi, this mind-bending technology is fast becoming integrated into apps and will soon be immersed in our everyday.

    By superimposing a computer generated image on a view of the real world, you can essentially bridge your physical and digital worlds. This workshop will use free apps, Aurasma and Layar, accessible on both mobile and desktop environments. Learn the basics of augmented reality, grasp how to make your own constructed worlds and show-off your creations.

    Warren Armstrong
    Meet Warren Armstrong, the curator of (Un)seen Sculptures, an augmented reality exhibition featuring both international and Australian artists. He’ll share his reality-warping experience, guide you through making your own layers and clue you up on basic skills in digital making and media. This new media artist has the resume of a true technology trailblazer. Settle in for a demonstration of how augmented reality has been applied to multiple purposes. Get your hands on the tools and asset files as you work with Warren to evolve your skills.

    This one-off event runs for 4 hours and is best suited to people 15 years and over.

    Bookings are essential as spaces are limited to 16 people.

    The City of Sydney joins forces with Musica Viva to bring you a series of free musical masterclasses and performances at Green Square Library.

    For high school and university students, teachers and adults, get the opportunity to absorb and observe 2 unique masterclasses. Members of the acclaimed Pacifica Quartet and Sitkovetsky Trio work with talented music students on a piece of their own work.

    For primary school-aged students, there are 2 fun music workshops designed to develop a love of music. No matter your musical experience, this interactive performance will challenge, delight and enrich.

    Purveyors of hot jazz, gypsy swing, Appalachian folk music and ragtime, The Doctor is ready to make the stage sizzle. Fresh from their Musica Viva national tour, this energetic crew will put a smile on any face.

    This interactive workshop features songs about lesser animals known to science, set to sweet harmonies with a rollicking foundation of guitar, bass, fiddle and banjo.

    Leave your sitting still at home and get ready to sing and try body percussion. Participate in dance and call and response as we explore the different elements of jazz, gypsy folk and ragtime.

    Suitable for kids of all skill levels, ages 8-12, this free event has limited capacity, so bookings are essential. Children will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

    Green Square Library is wheelchair friendly.
