Astrid Kahmke. Build the infrastructure that let you work in VR

Duration
90’
VR is a new medium, a new art form, a new technology. It is challenging to explore the opportunities of immersive storytelling without a comprehensive approach and developing a holistic infrastructure for this art field. What are its integral components, and most importantly, how to build them.

Astrid Kahmke knows that “It takes a village to raise a kid – and it takes a passionate community to work in VR.” The speaker will talk about her experience of using virtual reality as a medium in Germany, about managing the European Creators’ Lab, and about working with festivals and the Bavarian XR Fund. In addition, the lecturer will focus on the issues of funding, networking, and knowledge exchange opportunities in the young VR community.
 

Astrid Kahmke is head of the European Creators’ lab for artistic XR and works as curator for immersive arts, consultant and producer. In the past she produced international feature films which won numerous awards, was Creative Director of the Bavarian Film Center for several years, where she started to build the infrastructure for the XR industry with governmental support in Bavaria from 2016 on. She was Festivaldirector and co-founder of the Virtual Worlds Festival in Munich and co-curated one of the first VR Festivals completely in Virtual Reality together with Stereopsia (Brussels) and VRrOOm in VRChat in 2020. Astrid is internationally requested as speaker and lecturer and is member of numerous international juries and committees with a focus on narrative XR.
