Event 2022

Hurray, the third XR Art & Networking Event will take place for the first time in presence! On June 23, 2022 from 1-5:30 p.m. we cordially invite the independent cultural scene and creative industry of Berlin to the AURORA Hall and the park of Schloss Köpenick.

One focus of the event will be on combining exciting fields such as AI, 3D sound, and physical computing with XR technologies. There will also be an update on WebAR.

In the context of »Physical Computing & Embodiment in VR«, we plan a preview of »XBPMMM«, the result of the second XR_Unites open call in collaboration with Janne Kummer, Anton Krause, and Steph Holl-Trieu.

The event will further draw attention to creative business models with XR and related funding opportunities at HTW Berlin – a one-hour XR workshop is planned for a casual exchange on business ideas. There will also be five stands on special themes where visitors can brainstorm about XR culture, future projects and networking opportunities over coffee in the Schlosspark.

Last but not least, the sister project of XR_Unites, AURORA School for ARtists, invites to an alumni meeting.

The event will be held in German (Powerpoint presentations & conversations also in English). REGISTRATION is requested by 17.06.2022!
