Join us at Samsung 837 to learn about the current innovations in Spark AR creation.
Samsung has partnered with Spark AR to meet and learn from innovating AR trailblazers and boundary-pushing creators working in this everchanging and exciting field.
The series begins Friday evening with an overview of each creator's specialties and interests in the field, followed by hands-on experience with each creator in intimate workshops on Saturday and Sunday. That's where you get the chance to design and publish your own AR effects.
Each week there will be interactive in-person workshops, where an expert Spark Partner Network creator will walk you through how to publish an immersive Spark AR effect and answer your questions. You'll have the opportunity to ideate, create and showcase your own effects on the Instagram platform. Limited seats available. Event is only opened to registrants who can attend the in-person event.
