CreativeXR online briefing session: How about a co-production?

Date: 22 April 2020 13:00 - 22 April 2020 15:00

Join Digital Catapult and Arts Council England for this online briefing session for applicants to the CreativeXR acceleration programme, focusing on co-production with international creators and producers.

In this time of uncertainty, it is important for international creators and producers to come together and collaborate on projects. International co-productions also allow UK creators to leverage international funds, thus creating bigger, more ambitious and more culturally diverse projects.

The purpose of this session is for creators to gain a more in depth understanding of the programme and the types of projects CreativeXR looks to support this year. We will go through the different project strands presented in the application brief, what support each of the selected strands will be provided and how the programme is continuously adapting to the current climate.

This session will also include pitches from potential international collaborators who UK creators can form co-productions with for their CreativeXR application.

Who should join the briefing session?

This event is designed for potential applicants to CreativeXR acceleration programme – creative innovators, technologists in the immersive space and arts & culture organisations with ideas for immersive creative content who are interested in meeting international producers and pursuing international co-productions.

Attendees will be able to share information on the Zoom chat during the session.

Why should you join the briefing session?

This session will enable attendees to gain a better understanding of the CreativeXR acceleration programme, the strands and the types of projects it looks to support. Attendees of this online briefing session will also be able to network and meet potential international collaborators for their CreativeXR project and beyond.
