Labs & Showcases

Screen South Digital Hub

LABS & SHOWCASES

diverse • creative tech-driven • dynamic

We learn best by doing.

Labs & Showcases is a quarterly programme of expert-led workshops and support, that culminate in a local exhibition of works. The programme provides a fully supported environment for you to try new things, expand your network, apply new skills to your practice and come away with a proof-of-concept to show for it.

Focussed on a particular medium or tool within the immersive & VR space, we bring together passionate leaders in the field and a cohort of creatives and individuals to get hands-on with new technology and apply this in a short space of time to create a tangible (if virtual) output of works.

This year’s programme will focus on 360 filming/photography, painting in VR, photogrammetry, and sound. Each quarter we will run introductory workshops which will be followed by an opportunity to use Digital Hub facilities and 1-2-1s to help realise your work, before exhibiting at a local gallery.
