A unique event to the Australian screen culture scene, XR:WA is an industry conference and public exhibition hybrid that embraces immersive technologies across VR, AR, games and everything between. This event is for the entire WA screen industry, students and wider audiences and bridges gaps between the existing screen sectors and the incredible opportunities XR provides across art and entertainment, design and architecture, health and medicine, education and academia and science and research.
A must for practitioners from all sectors of screen practice and industry using immersive technologies, XR:WA will examine intellectual property, conceptualising, writing, directing and producing for immersive technologies, markets and festivals, tilt brush techniques, VR in health, sound design and a full program of events for practitioners at any level.
Between July 12-14 at the Pan Pacific Hotel, XR:WA culminates with masterclasses, keynotes and intensive workshops from Unity and Microsoft, installations, a 360′ VR cinema, full-body VR game-play, nightly networking drinks, the Spacecubed Games and Experience Emporium (packed with local computer games) and VR experiences from around the country. XR:WA represents a major opportunity for professional development in the area and a fantastic chance to present to the entire screen industry. See the ongoing program here.
In making the event as accessible as possible, we’re proud to be working with Screenwest in offering potential delegates who may be financially disadvantaged or confronting other issues that may otherwise prevent the purchase of a full conference registration, an XR:WA Fellowship. There are ten Fellowships on offer, constituting 3-day registrations. Click here to submit your application.
Events are available to attend on a per-session basis, but if you want to experience all of what XR:WA has to offer, you can register for a single day or 3-days for access all areas. Registration includes morning and afternoon tea, lunch and evening networking drinks. Register here.
As part of the event on the conference floor, we’re also including the Screen Industry Field and Career Days which includes exhibitors from all sectors of the screen industry.
Outside of the Pan Pacific, we’re partnering with the WA Maritime Museum with their great new immersive exhibition, will also have a nightly Beer and Boardgames event at Studio Startup and a special industry session at Sunset Studios.
