Following on from our Doing Digital, Thinking Digital event at Pinewood in 2016, Creative Cardiff and BAFTA Cymru invite you to Visioning the New Realities; a discussion on the integration of virtual reality into the creative sectors.

We are keen to bring the VR community together and plan to shine a light on all of the interesting and innovative work happening in Cardiff and the city region and assessing what the creative tech cluster looks like in this geographical area.

We are delighted to be welcoming keynote speakers Sol Rogers and Mark Burvill.

Sol is the chair of Immerse UK - a cross-sector network for businesses and research organisations across all parts of the UK economy that are interested in the way that augmented and virtual reality can help drive productivity, social and economic growth - and founder of REWIND; the studio who created Magic Butterfly with Welsh NationalOpera.

Mark is the Technical Director in Aardman Animations' interactive department and an executive member of the BAFTA VR Advisory Group.

There will also be the opportunity to hear a series of lightning talks from individuals, agencies and organisations based in Wales engaging in interesting VR projects in their current work. 

We’ll have a marketplace for small group demonstrations – if you’d like to bring some tech to share, please drop us a line.  

Visioning the New Realities will take place on Thursday, 16 November from 9am until 1pm at Wales Millennium Centre and is supported by Cardiff Digital Cultures Network.
