Building on the festival’s successful first foray into the work of XR (virtual and augmented reality) last year, we are back for another fascinating showcase of local and South Asian XR at Birmingham Open Media, curated by Taran 3D. You don’t have to be an expert – everyone is welcome. Admission is Free.

Sikh Museum Initiative and BOM present the Anglo Sikh Virtual Museum; a groundbreaking project that has digitised over 25 artefacts from British collections using cutting-edge Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technology.

MBD’s Empire Soldiers: A South Asian Story, is a VR film that pays tribute to the forgotten contribution of South Asian Soldiers in World War 1.

Project Dastaan showcase Child of Empire is an animated virtual reality (VR) docu-drama experience which immerses viewers in one of the largest forced migrations in human history: the 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan.

Darbar’s VR360 Festival brings Indian classical music into the realm of Virtual Reality (VR), transporting viewers to picturesque locations in India, immersing them in serene settings like temples and lakeside sunsets.

Surfing Light Beams and Crossover Labs presents Chains; about a proud tradition of fighting for freedom and how protest is at the cornerstone of creating change. But which chains are there left to break and which chains are there left to make? (originally commissioned Birmingham Festival 2022 for the Commonwealth Games as part of Time Travel Tram)
