XR Showcase: Immersive Sound

Step into our cutting-edge 360° sound rig to discover an immersive journey through audio worlds at this free-to-enter, open-to-all exhibition!

In partnership with Queercall, Folkestone’s LGBTQIA+ festival of art, our XR Lab cohort of more than 10 artists have been busy crafting innovative soundscapes exploring the possibilities of multi-speaker sound, including pieces about the Queer landscape of Kent and beyond, After an intensive lab led by audio artists Ain Bailey and Christian Duka, participants have developed prototypes of their sound projects for you to experience in an hour-long loop in our purpose-built rig.

QUEERCALL is Folkestone’s very own LGBTQIA+ festival of art & performance. Taking place as part of the New Queers on the Block artist development programme led by Marlborough Productions, this year’s festival, QUEERCALL, is produced by Ash McNaughton and will feature live art & theatre performances, site specific performance, exhibitions & community events across the Creative Quarter.
