Open Worlds

Tuesday – Immersive Worlds, how to build them, what they mean.

Wednesday – The Sound of Immersion, spacialised sound, speaker arrays.

Immersive Arts Bootcamp

February 13 – March 3

Our 3 week Immersive Arts Bootcamp is a programme of guided learning, technical masterclasses, talks, and tech demos for people who want to work in immersive media, either by incorporating it into their creative practice, or by finding a job in the industry. 

This runs parallel to our Open Worlds events and shares the first week, but continues for two further weeks, shaping up your skills so you’ll be on track to make all your brilliant immersive projects happen in the future.

Bootcamp is designed for and is free of charge, to people who are neurodivergent and/or who live in one of the West Midlands priority areas.

We can provide access support for those that need it.
