Denver Immersive Summit
The one-day gathering for skill-sharing and networking that launched the Immersive Denver community.
Denver Startup Week Immersive Sprint & Networking Night
In collaboration with the Denver Startup Week Designer Track, we gave three local immersive creators/companies a micro-grant to develop an experiential installation in a RiNo warehouse for the Denver Startup Week audience, created over the course of 72 hours and viewable throughout the week. At our Immersive Arts & Business Happy Hour creative networking night, Startup Week attendees engaged with the storytelling power and fun of experiential art firsthand, experiencing the activated sprint installations and performances. Participating artists/companies were: Control Group Productions, Melinda Cary of the Shamanic Dolls, and Jesse Hanson, with an additional installation created by Cody Borst. The Immersive Arts & Business Happy Hour also featured a Multisensory Nametag Station designed by Andrew Novick and Jenny Filipetti, live demos of Full Body Sound technology, and conversation-starting fortune tellers by Linda Klein.
