This workshop aims to introduce the participants to Quill, a software created to draw and create animations in 3D space. Using movements to generate forms, the user has access to a diverse toolkit in order to create immersive environments. Participants will first discover the work of female artists in VR and learn the basics of Quill. They will then develop a project, in solo or as group, to be shared during a public presentation at the end of the workshop.

**Are you employed by a company with a payroll of $ 2 million? In addition, this training will be paid by your employer because you will follow in the course of your job?
According to Emploi-Québec regulations, people who answer yes to these two questions have access to training, but can not benefit from Emploi-Québec’s subsidized rates. The fare will therefore represent 10% of the total value of the training. In the event of more registrations than the number of places available, priority will be given to artists and cultural workers who meet the profile promoted by Emploi-Québec.
