Artist Call: Dance Artists – XR Program
Centering artists with an embodied practice, New Works XR encourages new voices in the development of creative technology. Building on our XR Pilot, this year’s program will support a group of dance and movement based artists interested in integrating extended reality (XR) technologies into their existing movement practices through workshops, mentorship, and residencies. XR (extended reality) is an umbrella term encompassing augmented (AR), virtual (VR), and mixed reality technologies. Supported by Mitacs and Emily Carr University of Art + Design, New Works XR is in partnership with New Media Gallery and a team of consulting artists and technologists working at the intersection of performance and XR technologies. The program provides support for dance makers and embodied practitioners in the early stages of creation involving technologies that fall under the umbrella of XR. The XR Program will resource the development of up to 4 XR projects with skills building workshops, mentorship with senior artists, consultation with technologists, access to gear and studio space, and XR resource sharing.
