A free to participate VR Hackjam for female-identifying musicians and sound artists to explore virtual performance spaces.
A 2-day participatory (over two afternoons) Hackjam for female identifying musicians and sound artists to explore the sonic parameters of Virtual Reality as a performance and improvisational space.
This is an experimental safe space, designed to support and nurture female collaboration in a way that can allow participants to think about potential future practice, digital expansions and new routes for experimentation. No previous VR experience is required, just participation over the two days.
Led by Inkibit Immersive, a female-led creative collective that uses VR to help individuals and organisations in underrepresented groups tell stories from the messy middle.
VR Sound Hackjam is supported through Digital Democracies, a two-year programme led by Threshold Studios and supported by Arts Council England. Digital Democracies connects three UK-based commissioning festivals, Frequency International Festival of Digital Culture (Produced by Threshold Studios), Freedom Festival (Produced by Freedom Festival Arts Trust) and Brighton Digital Festival (Directed by Lighthouse) to explore the intersection of technology, art and public space.
