AwhiWorld is a creative technology company that creates innovative, immersive and interactive experiences in community based settings.
We weave emerging technologies (such as augmented reality, mixed reality, geo locative mobile, projection mapping, e-textiles and smart wearables, micro-controllers and IoT) with traditional technologies and arts (e.g. maker crafts and cultural taonga). Our work involves place and space rejuvenation, innovative learning and development and heritage and cultural enrichment. We also engage in creative technology consultancy for a wide range of organisations and support capacity building in our sector through workshops, seminars and talks.
We have collaborated with a diverse range of people and organisations including experimental artists, elders in rest homes, mana whenua, Pacific Island communities, marae, school children and their teachers, musicians and sound artists, community groups, scientists, traditional cultural groups, poets, engineers, start up tech companies and business associations.
