For this year's Innovator in Residence program, we are happy to welcome back three of our previous Innovators: Derek Quenneville (Game Design and 3D printing), Elli Raynai (Virtual Reality Filmmaking) and Yifat Shaik (3D and game design). They join us to celebrate the new Digital Innovation Hub locations which opened this summer at Agincourt, Albion and Downsview.

Elli Raynai will introduce and demonstrate concepts of VR (Virtual Reality) and VR filmmaking at Albion. Finally, at Agincourt, Yifat Shaik and workshop participants will join forces to explore fundamentals of 3D design and modelling, learning about related 3D design software along the way.
