The Masks We Wear explores how you might feel that there are different versions of yourself, and how you can use these different versions affect all aspects of life, both good and bad.

The world is a complex place, and leaving school, that complexity is daunting. We believe kids have what it takes to make a place for themselves, so long as they can find the confidence to be who they truly are. This immersive, live action VR series helps young people in late high school better understand themselves. We show them how common and relatable their troubles are to their friends and peers, and provide them tools to work through those difficult moments we all face. Ultimately, we enable young people to take their place in the world.

Set in a theatre, our expert in confidence Stefanie Hodgson (Australian Alopecia Areata Foundation, Genetic Support Network Victoria, Variety the Children’s Charity) uses the anxieties of public speaking and performance, along with her own unique experiences dealing with multiple chronic illnesses, to gently build confident practices and trigger discussion in the classroom. With support from comedians Lucy Valentine (@LucyXIV on Twitter and writer at @SBSComedy) and Andrew Kirkness (the 44m viewed AngryAussie on YouTube), who have faced their own struggles in order to perform, this VR series is the perfect starting point for classroom workshops or individual sessions with students aged 15-18.
