Open Call: Mira X Hangar Immersive Narratives for 360º Projection Dome
‘MIRA Digital Arts Festival’ and ‘Hangar’ are hoping to fill domes and planetariums with the most innovative of immersive art this year. Advertising for two month-long residencies at Hangar’s studios, their aim is to gather the best of national and international talent to produce a body of design in a 360º format. In return, winners will not only benefit from the workspaces, technical support, services and context offered by the institutions, but the exposure gained through their work being exhibited at the Mira festival from the 7th to 9th of November 2019.
Mira is an annual festival of digital arts that explores techno-culture and digital trends, featuring a repertoire of audiovisual shows, immersive installations and workshops; Hangar, a centre for art research and development, aims to support visual artists throughout the different stages of the creative process. It does so by facilitating an array or services that are project-specific, such as equipment and production assistance. Both institutions are focused on promoting, engaging and developing emerging disciplines and methodologies for audiovisual creation.
Participants from any background and discipline are welcome, however, an skill-set to develop design work for immersion and interaction is required. Ultimately, the aspiring candidates should be engaging in how they can develop new narratives throughout research and innovation to comply with the requirements of the creative brief. Proposals will be accepted for submission from 29th January to 23rd March, results following to be published online by the respective organisations while the winners will be contacted directly.
