Events in our Virtual Festival Campus
As well as being the venue for 2d films, sound installations, VR films and art works, we will be hosting numerous events in the Virtual Festival Campus over the course of the festival.
First up will be a guided tour of the super cool Carlow Arts Festival Virtual Festival Campus in Alt Space with creator Ciara del Grosso and VR film strand curator Camille Donegan. We will explore an eclectic immersive environment of mini games, a meditation orb, and wings to make you fly while surrounded by models of Carlow buildings such as Carlow College and the Braun building.
Other events will take the form of Campfire conversations. We will have more details available shortly, an overview includes:
- Artistic Director Jo Mangan with artists featured in this year’s festival. Jennifer Walshe, Jenn Kirby, Michelle Doyle, Sharon Phelan and Jennifer Moore.
- Carlow Arts Festival Wedge Fund recipient Bru Theatre’s James Riordan, Hanna Slättne and Paul Kinsella discuss explorations and findings from their research on creating new theatrical experiences in Virtual Reality.
- A conversation on NFT’s (aka non fundable tokens). Discover how they are impacting the art world. Do they offer a reliable new revenue stream for artists or is it all fad? The conversation may get heated by the campfire as we join artists on both sides of the fence! Kate Butler, Shane Sutton, Rachel O’Dwyer.
