I am the moderator of an open 360/ VR/ XR collaborative group based in Bristol. This group’s aim is to encourage a broader and inclusive spectrum of individuals within this emerging media by democratising access to materials, funding and resources. In particular, the group is aimed at boosting representation of women, POC, LGBTQ+ and other ‘othered’ and excluded groups through organising skill-sharing workshops and ongoing collaborative practice that prioritises flexible access funding to support and facilitate participation.
As a collaborative, we have run 2 series of workshops. ‘360 and Live events’ and ‘360 and interviews’. So far we have produced 1 experimental short ‘Paranormal Anxiety’ (2018) and are currently working on a documentary short about the 50th anniversary of St Pauls.
