Audiences for arts & story driven VR content

Audiences for arts & story riven VR content

Lunchtime Talks are a series of informal presentations at Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio. They normally take place at 13:00 on a Friday, are free and are open to everybody who is interested in what they do. Come along, bring a sandwich, and get to know more about the Studio community, current and up-coming projects, or residents' work.

In this week's talk, Catherine Allen and Emma Hughes from Limina will explore what they have learned so far about Virtual Reality audiences in a cultural context, focusing on the Limina VR Weekender held at Watershed.

Catherine and Emma 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.

The Pervasive Media Studio is located within the Watershed building. Let us know if you'd like a tour and we'll be happy to show you around. Send an email to
