We were very lucky to have VR Arts and Future Artists along to Manchester for their first Virtual Reality Development Lab. It took place from July 19th to 23rd July 2017 in partnership with Digital Innovation at MMU.
Based in The Shed on MMU’s Manchester City Campus, the event included technology partners Cooler Master, HTC Vive, CCL Computers and Unity with support from the BBC, VR Manchester, MMU, Manchester City Council and the Royal Society of Arts.
The aim of the 4 days was to allow creators in the emerging art form of Virtual Reality to collaborate, share ideas, experiment and learn in an inclusive workshop environment with their VR peers. A number of our students, friends and staff took part in the lab, which is the first of a series that will be taking place at MMU in 2017-2018.
