2017 VR World Congress – Bristol

CREATE will be exploring Constructive Labs’ Virtual Reality Operating System in a new research collaboration. This system allows artists, developers and hobbyists equal access to tools for creating multi user worlds whilst in VR. This partnership provides Oxford Brookes University an opportunity to work with an exciting new technology company and to demonstrate this technology at the 2017 VR World Congress.

Project Scoop facilitates press release for local children centre campaigners

CREATE’s “Project Scoop” supported the writing and distribution of a press release that has helped highlight the campaign to save Oxfordshire’s Children’s Centres. This was accompanied by a Video News Release and is part of a wider project documenting the impact of austerity on local communities. Project Scoop continues to research stories related to changes in community facilities in Oxfordshire and is supported both by researchers at Oxford Brookes University and Film Oxford’s Production Group.

Please get in contact if you have strong stories that should be told.
