Explore the future of virtual reality

The Exploring Digital Futures event in Scarborough 26 May 2017 encompasses inspiring and informative talks, discussions, networking opportunities, shows and experiences. It'll focus on emerging trends and developments in the use of digital technologies in the arts and creative industries. If you're interested in finding out more about these new technologies (particularly Virtual and Augmented Reality (AVR) and 360 film), or if you're studying or work in theatre, film and the visual arts, gaming, education, museums and galleries then our one day conference event will give you loads of information to keep you up to date with the new developments. We will be announcing other events that will be open to all and offer further chances to experience the new technologies first hand.
