CreativeXR Briefing: Manchester

October 13, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Immersive technologies (including virtual and augmented reality) have significant potential to enable new formats of creative content for audiences and users. This emerging medium offers the arts and culture sector an unprecedented opportunity to create outstanding content that inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us.


CreativeXR gives creative talent the opportunity to experiment with immersive technologies to create new experiences that inspire audiences

Focused on the creative industries, particularly the arts and culture sector; the programme gives the best creative teams the opportunity develop concepts and prototypes of immersive content (including VR, AR and MR). The programme offers access to early stage finance, facilities, industry leaders and commissioning bodies, and the opportunity to pitch for further development funding. The programme has been developed by Digital Catapult and Arts Council England, with support from Innovate UK.
