ZOOM-IN: XR unites! Collaborative Cultural Offerings with Extended Reality in Cooperation with Kulturförderpunkt Berlin

Extended Reality technologies such as Augmented and Virtual Reality open up a constantly expanding field of experimentation for creatives from the fields of art, culture and technology. Strong interdisciplinary teams are needed to develop large-scale XR projects – so that they can find each other, the new EU project XR_Unites at HTW Berlin organizes two networking events a year and publishes an open call once a year. The concept of the winning team is implemented with the support of XR_Unites

In cooperation with Kulturförderpunkt Berlin, there was a ZOOM-IN on 19.11.2020, 10-12 am, with information about the project, examples and technical background knowledge. This was followed from 12.30 by an experimental, completely digital collaborative concept phase for Berlin creatives.


10.00 a.m. – Welcome and introduction (also of XR_Unites)
10.30 a.m. – Maja Stark and Christoph Holtmann: Cultural offerings with multi-user XR: examples and technical background knowledge
