Macquarie ICT Innovations Centre is proud to invite you to two very special WHEN2050 events.

1. SPECIAL EVENING VIEWING of the newly opened WHEN2050 exhibition and 3dedrats light show on Thursday the 20nd of October from 7pm to 9pm

Due to the popularity of this exhibit, MacICT and Sydney College of the Arts are hosting a special evening viewing of the incredible work of year 10 students from Dulwich High School of Visual Arts and Design and their teacher Peter Wootten,  who have been collaborating with our Virtual Worlds project team to design and build sustainable 3D models of buildings for the year 2050. This exhibition will allow you to interact with innovative 3D artworks, walk or fly through the students’ virtual world as an avatar and experience the intricate architectural designs in full 3D.

This is a perfect opportunity for those who were unable to make it to the opening night. Please see the attached invitation and feel free to send this on to friends and colleagues.

 2. SYDNEY ARCHITECTURE FESTIVAL DAY at Sydney College of the Arts on Saturday the 22nd of October from 11am-6pm

MacICT would also like to invite you to a very special festival day being hosted by Sydney College of the Arts on Saturday 22 October. Sydney College of the Arts, a faculty of the Division of Architecture and Creative Arts at the University of Sydney, will host a day of tours, workshops, public talks, demonstrations, exhibitions, plus much more, as part of the 2011 Sydney Architecture Festival. Join us at the beginning of the day for a traditional Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony, to launch the 2011 Sydney Architecture Festival Day at SCA. Click here to download your invitation.
