Narrative XR Lab, a creative arena exploring artistic storytelling in Extended Reality (XR), is now opening its doors to new talent. If you are interested in VR, AR and MR, and want to be part of the thriving XR landscape, this is your chance to make your voice heard and your creativity seen
Why is this Exciting?
Extended Reality (XR) is a growing field where VR (Virtual Reality), AR (Augmented Reality) and MR (Mixed Reality) set the tone. This technology is more than just a trend - it is an opportunity to redefine storytelling and create new dimensions of experiences. Participants in the Narrative XR Lab, based at the Visual Arena, explore artistic storytelling in XR and strengthen their skills in this cutting-edge domain. In cross-disciplinary teams consisting of directors, artists, graphic designers, game developers and project managers, they collaborate to develop exciting XR projects.
At the Narrative XR Lab, participants work on their XR idea with support from experienced industry leaders. Our partners include:
Gothenburg Film Studios:
Specializing in 360 degree video and virtual production, they offer tutorials and practical workshops.
RISE - Research Institutes of Sweden
They contribute with training and guidance in how narrative and storytelling can be facilitated through games and interactive technology. RISE also provides technical equipment and expertise in these areas.
