The capacities of immersive and surround media to translate experience, space, place, and evoke empathy and care for peoples and places are foregrounded. We will bridge gaps between research and production in art and design, as well as facilitate ongoing dialogues between North African and European, Egyptian and Swiss artists. The program consists of hybrid, public and invitational Research Labs as well as a Production Lab for artists, and a series of public performances. These activities complement one another through a series of interactive events and research publications which stimulate new ideas for XR uses in critical, creative production.
