The Raleigh Spaces Project highlights the people, places, and creativity that infuses Raleigh North Carolina and surrounding areas. From a painter's studio to chef's kitchen, a parking lot mural to a recording studio, using 360VR video, Raleigh Spaces will immerse you in the stories of those who create and inspire the world around us.

Searching for a way to capture various local creatives and their environments using 360 VR video as a storytelling device, Arthur Earnest and Mike Cuales launched the Raleigh Spaces Project. The hope was to connect people to places while introducing a wider audience to this emerging medium. Earnest is a Director and Video Producer interested in the storytelling and documentary aspects of 360 video as a new medium. He also likes cheeseburgers and donuts. As a Technical Producer and gadget geek, Cuales is primarily interested in exploring the many applications for 360 video and VR technologies, particularly in community outreach and STEM education settings.
