These events provide an opportunity for knowledge sharing and learning on emergent technology (virtual reality/augmented reality/mixed reality) between tech and creative practitioners and a diverse range of academics using the technology. We hope to encourage networking and opportunities for collaboration.

Call-outs and collaborations

  • Peter Gardom and Dominika Noworolska will be sharing information on his Transforming Statues and Community Voices project - a collaborative community-based heritage-arts-digital project, recording the lived experiences of people in Cardiff, using these voices to guide the co-creation of AR experiences linked to statues, monuments and other symbolic artefacts in the public realm to transform how people can interact with and make sense of them using their own devices.
  • Representatives from the Clwstwr R&D programme will be sharing information on their latest Clwstwr Ideas Lab designed for freelancers and micro businesses working in South Wales who have the skills and potential to develop innovative ideas for a new screen or news related product, service or experience. The two-day Lab provides an opportunity to explore, develop and refine new ideas with the support of Clwstwr partners PDR taking participants through a user design process.
