Verity McIntosh

Verity is a Senior Lecturer in Virtual and Extended Realities at UWE Bristol.

Producer, lecturer and notorious ‘Chin of VR’, Verity McIntosh will be giving us a special preview of the brand-new MA in Virtual Reality, one of the first anywhere in the world, launching next January at UWE Bristol. 

This unique and characteristically energetic ‘masters class’ (see what she did there) will include a rapid romp through the VR/XR scene, touching upon journalism, documentary, animation, gaming, theatre, music, enthusiastic estate agents and adult entertainment. 

Verity will also offer a few provocations about some of the power structures already at play, where we might take this emergent medium next, and why we all need to ask better questions about what, and who this is all for.

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Digital Bristol Week 2018 and will take place in Watersheds, cinema three. After the talk you are invited to join us in the Pervasive Media Studio as part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.

Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday. Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who’s interested in what we do. After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm. Let us know if you’d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around just before the talk.
