We are delighted to announce 27 new Fellows who join us as part of the South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN) - a £6.5 million project to expand the use of creative technologies.
Funded by Research England, SWCTN supports three one-year programmes that will explore immersion, automation and data. This new network is led by the UWE Bristol, in partnership with Kaleider, Watershed, Bath Spa University, the University of Plymouth and Falmouth University.
Immersion Fellowship Programme
Drawn from across the South West but with international reach, our Immersion Fellows will spend the next three months thinking deeply about the potentials, challenges and opportunities in the realm of immersion. They will produce new insight spanning disciplines such as performance, sound, VR, heritage, music, dance, healthcare and ethics; asking questions around inclusion, perception, behaviour change, materiality, disability, intimacy and much more.
