c3: CreateLAB is the project R&D and performance arm of the c3. Artists and content creators are provided with the opportunity to explore the world of the immersive 360 fulldome space in The Vortex Dome through a special arrangement and generosity of sponsor Vortex Immersion Media. The Vortex Dome has also provided space to artists for traditional film screenings, concerts and workshops.
