Within the framework of the EU call for proposals “Bridging Culture and Audiovisual Content through Digital”, the cultural project REAL IN, co-initiated by VRAHM!, has received funding as one of eight projects.

REAL IN is a cross-cultural and cross-sectoral research project of VRHAM! Virtual Reality & Arts Festival (Hamburg), La Manufacture (Avignon), MEET Digital Culture Center (Mailand) and ESPRONCEDA Institute of Arts & Culture (Barcelona).

“We are extremely pleased to receive this funding commitment! This is a great honor, an exciting next step for the VRHAM! Festival. On the initiative of us and ESPRONCEDA from Barcelona, we were able to set up a great project with other partners that will explore and present developments in 3D scanning technologies for artistic and immersive projects across borders and across Europe.”

The four European partners from the fields of interactive arts, theater, music and design, together with the award-winning production company Black Euphoria (Marseille), will further develop the use of 3D scanning technology in combination with immersive technologies for the creative industries to promote new participatory approaches for audiences. With REAL IN, an innovative program of residencies, symposia and workshops will be implemented to present and discuss the prototypes jointly developed by creatives, programmers and creative industry actors at the respective festivals and events.
