Current opportunities


Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) is pleased to offer the opportunity for creative practitioners working within visual arts, performance and/or interdisciplinary practices to attend a XR bootcamp facilitated by Frame Labs on Friday 30 July (10am–5pm).

The PICA XR CO LAB Bootcamp is a one-day intensive bootcamp for creative practitioners who are keen to explore their creativity in the new digital mediums of Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality, otherwise known as XR (eXtended Reality). The XR Bootcamp will provide artists with a thorough understanding of XR mediums, how work is created, and where and how they can present that work for global audiences. The day will also involve talks by leading artists working in these mediums, as well as demonstrations with VR and AR tools and equipment.

Bootcamp participants will also be invited to apply for a two-day Hackathon in August at PICA to develop an idea to share at PICA during the XR:WA Festival in September. See below for more information.

To apply for the Bootcamp, please complete the below form by 11.59pm (Perth time) Thursday 22 July 2021.
