Audiences for arts & story driven VR content. Who are they and what do they want?
In this talk, Catherine Allen and Emma Hughes from Limina will explore what they have learned so far about VR audiences in a cultural context, focusing on the Limina VR Weekender held at Watershed.
Catherine and Emma from Limina will draw from their learnings at the Limina VR Weekender and other VR exhibitions they have ran, they will outline who the VR arts audience are at present, why they come to experience VR, what are the factors that make it a good leisure experience and the type of content that Limina have observed being particularly popular. If you are interested in this emerging form of culture and the development of a new art form, then this talk is for you.
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
