2020/04/12: VRHAM! ACADEMY and RESIDENCIES 2020

VRHAM! – Virtual Reality & Arts Festival Hamburg

VRHAM! is the first international Virtual Reality & Arts Festival. Since its first edition in 2018, VRHAM! has established itself as an important date in the international VR art scene. The festival is a platform for extraordinary national and international artists who are literally exploring new dimensions. From 5 to 13 June 2020 VRHAM!’s third edition will take place at Hamburg’s Oberhafenquartier.


VRHAM! is looking for the most groundbreaking and innovative VR-/AR-/XR-projects in development to join our 2020 residency program. 

Two creative teams (one international and one regional) of up to three persons each can (further) develop innovative works in the field of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality art and 360° film as well as multimedia installations and performative formats, accompanied by renowned international mentors. The residencies will take place directly in advance of this year's festival so presentation of the works can be integrated into the opening weekend of VRHAM! 2020. 


For the 2020 edition, VRHAM! Virtual Reality & Arts Festival is looking for students, emerging artists and creatives to participate in the international VRHAM! ACADEMY 2020.

The VRHAM! ACADEMY aims at students and young professionals in the field of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality to facilitate the exchange between creatives from diverse backgrounds and countries. With the VRHAM! Academy 2020 we want to create an inspiring atmosphere for emerging talents to exchange their experience, see current artworks of international established artists and meet international experts within the course of the VRHAM! Festival opening weekend.

The Academy offers exclusive invitations, free entrance to VRHAM! Festival 2020 and the accompanying discourse program, meetings with international artists and curators as well as special functions exclusively designed for the participants, such as networking-events, guided tours with cooperation partners, etc.



Deadline for both Open Calls: April 12, 2020.
