Navigating the explosion of new narrative forms
In new media, talent development doesn’t follow a traditional route. Artists can be established in one medium, but beginners in another. And the type of support that can help bring a project to the next level varies widely across disciplines.
Therefore, DocLab Academy offers a tailor-made program that uses the festival as a living lab for research and development, experimentation and networking. DocLab Academy is aimed at supporting the growing international ecosystem of artists, developers, scientists and entrepreneurs working across interactive and immersive media and art.
Stay tuned for more information about the next edition of DocLab Academy.
