Live funding

XR4EUROPE, LAVAL VIRTUAL, Stereopsia EUROPE, and VRDays Europe have teamed up to offer an accelerator programme for SMEs and XR producers.

XR Stories – funding for internships

Closes on 31 August 2022

XR Stories’ internships offer SMEs based in the Yorkshire and Humber region the opportunity to engage with talented students and graduates on a funded basis. This year, our focus is on addressing the current technical skills shortages in the creative industries.

The collaborative platform to be established should be the basis to build a strong CCI (Culture and Creative Industries) innovation ecosystem with all actors working together, also becoming active participants in EU R&I activities.

The Creative Enterprise* Business Planning Support will pay grants of up to £5000 to support companies who work in moving image for storytelling, spanning film, television, games and immersive, to build meaningful connections and create opportunities for business growth. Only open to businesses based in England, outside the M25.

The aim of this programme is to assist organisations to deliver arts projects which contribute to the growth of arts in the community for new and existing audiences and which reflect the diversity of Northern Ireland’s society and culture. Rolling deadline, turnaround <2 months in most cases.
