Open Call: Inclusive Design for Immersive Experiences Challenge

InGAME and StoryFutures Academy are inviting applications to their Inclusive Design for Immersive Experience Challenge.

Are you a dynamic creative company with a track-record in immersive content creation? Do you want your content to be accessible to the widest possible audience? If so, you can pitch for £35,000 prototype funding!

This opportunity will offer SMEs the opportunity to work directly with InGAME and StoryFutures Academy, Open Inclusion and XR Access to pilot an experimental Inclusive Innovation Process. Learn to: apply innovative approaches and toolkits to design; test and deliver immersive content that provides better experiences for all; and create immersive content that is more accessible and delightful to those with permanent lived experiences of disability, and to all of us who temporarily or situationally move, sense, think or feel differently.
You’ll have access to cutting-edge expertise in inclusive design and immersive production, commercialisation support, audience insights, and user testing, as well as focused workshops to help you upskill and embed innovative user-centred design practises into your productions.

The Inclusive Design for Immersive Experiences Challenge is a competitive process consisting of two stages: 

  1. The Inclusive Innovation Lab – a four-day highly interactive programme designed to rapidly upskill SMEs in the practice of inclusive innovation and design.
  2. The Inclusive Design Accelerator – two teams will be selected for an eight-week programme to test and embed inclusive innovation concepts and user-centred features within existing, near-to-market IP.

Got questions about applying? Book a meeting with the InGAME team.

Closing date: Monday 14 March 2022
