Immersive Days is both a network and a new annual gathering of professional artists, curators, researchers, technicians, teachers and students within a broad field of immersive technologies and (artistic) practices. The initiative functions as a continuation of several symposiums, workshops and research into immersive technologies in art.
We meet up to share, explore and playtest XR and immersive sound projects, often works in progress. We give feedback to each other and we share experiences and challenges. The aim is to build a strong collaborative platform, where we help and support each other. And then we try to investigate and map some of the latest technological and artistic developments within the fields of extended reality and spatial sound.
Due to the latest developments of Covid-19 and the regional restrictions, we have decided to postpone the Immersive Days gathering scheduled for November 11-12, 2020 until April 2021 where it can coincide with our Acousmatic Lab.
Until then, we would like to invite you to a series of online lectures and discussions leading up to the gathering next year.
