If you joined us for part one of this series, you learned about the many uses of new digital technology to reach and expand nonprofit audiences during this challenging time.  (And if you missed it, you can watch the recording here).

In part two, we'll learn about the practical ways to use Mixed Reality (the full range of experiences that combine physical reality with digital virtual environments).  You'll learn how to make use of new tools to tell your nonprofit’s story and reach your audiences in new ways.  Learn about pilot projects and new applications of augmented/virtual reality in Greater Cleveland.  It's easier than you think!
