VRHAM! 2018 – Virtual Reality & Arts Festival Hamburg

A chance to immerse yourself, relax, marvel, empathise, cross new boundaries, discover fascinating worlds and have a new, 360-degree experience – all that and much more is offered by the first German Virtual Reality & Arts Festival HAMburg: VRHAM!

From 7 to 17 June 2018 VRHAM! presents numerous VR experiences by international artists and creative minds, as well as live performances and guided Virtual Reality tours. The varied events program comprises workshops and discussions, lectures and panel meetings on the topic of virtual reality.

A high-profile international jury will be awarding the EUR 5,000 »VRHAMMY! Award« for the best VR experience at the festival. A second prize of EUR 2,500 will go to the most promising Hamburg emerging artist.

The initiator and artistic director of VRHAM! is Ulrich Schrauth, until recently Head of Programming at Theater der Welt/Thalia Theater, who regards Virtual Reality as more than just a technological game: "Finding yourself in fascinating worlds, immersing yourself in stories as though you were part of a film, work of art or play–all that opens up completely new dimensions to our perception of art. It is exactly this experience that we want to make possible by presenting VRHAM!"

The OPEN CALL for artists and creative minds is on as of now; please submit entries by 10 April 2018:
