From cutting edge dance, to a VR wildlife safari, to a trip through a surrealist painting, this weekend of immersive experiences will open your senses to an emerging new world of creative potential. The weekend kicks off on Friday evening with a discussion exploring how we ‘read’ VR; how to unpack a VR experience critically and how to discover its layers of meaning. This discussion is then followed by Wonderful You, (created by Bristol-based VR pioneers BDH Immersive), a virtual reality journey through the strange world of your developing senses; sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.

Throughout Saturday and Sunday we’ll be presenting different VR Sessions, which delve into a particular theme that transport you on a unique journey. Each of these sessions will be approximately an hour long and will include a selection of VR experiences followed by a post-show discussion with Catherine Allen, curator of The Limina VR Weekender. Over the weekend a panel of expert judges will be selecting the winner of the inaugural Limina Creative VR Award. After the festival has come to a close, the jury will have opportunity to reflect and decide on the winner and we'll be announcing the results the following week. The award will be presented to the VR experience that the jury considers to demonstrate the most artistic potential, taking into account your audience feedback.
