Strap on your sandals and hold onto your straw hats - join the FOLDA team for a beach blowout to close out this year’s digital festival!
Meet the party people in FOLDA's custom Gather space, explore the Performance Hall and Digital Artifacts Room, then head out to the lakeside Camp FOLDA to play a game on the dock, get a beachy portrait of yourself, dance to summery tunes, and find the clues to complete the scavenger hunt.
Gather is a web-browser based virtual platform that combines video-calling with a 2D map that you explore as an avatar (a figure that you choose to represent you). Unlike Zoom, Gather allows you to move around and start your own conversations. When you get close to someone else in the space, your video and audio will connect and you can say hello. When you walk away from them, audio/video will turn off. You can mute yourself and turn your camera on and off at any time.
Gather requires a computer (laptop or desktop) and a Chrome or Firefox browser (not Safari). We recommend wearing headphones. Please note that Gather is not supported in mobile (phone/tablet).
