Awavena Terms and Conditions

Virtual Reality (VR) experience health and safety notice.

Please read this notice before you book your VR experience.

By participating in the Awavena Virtual Reality Experience (‘VR experience’), you agree that you have read and understood the following information.

The Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA) does not recommend the use of Virtual Reality (VR) for children under the age of 13 years. Notwithstanding, if a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 permits their child to participate in the VR experience, they should supervise their child for any adverse effects. AGWA has the sole discretion not to admit any person to the VR experience if an AGWA representative considers that the VR experience would not be suitable for them.

HTC, the manufacturer of the product used to deliver the VR experience (‘the VR products’) advise the following:

Photosensitive Seizures
Like other products that produce visual effects (including light flashes), the product may trigger epileptic seizures, seizures, fainting, or severe dizziness even in people who have no history of these conditions. If you have a previous history of epilepsy or seizures, loss of awareness, or other symptoms linked to an epileptic condition, consult your doctor before using the product. To reduce the likelihood of a seizure do not use the product if you are tired or need sleep.

Use by Children
The product was not designed to be used by small children (under 4) or toddlers. If older children are permitted to use the product, then adults should monitor them closely for any negative effects during and after their use of the product. Do not allow older children to use the product if negative effects are observed.
