StoryFutures Academy Supports Broadcast Futures: Immersive Experience Commission
XR Stories, StoryFutures Academy and the National Science and Media Museum are looking for expressions of interest from SMEs based in Yorkshire and the Humber to develop and deliver an immersive installation located in the National Science and Media Museum in 2022.
The installation will be part of the Science Museum Group’s Broadcast 100 programme, led by the National Science and Media Museum (NSMM), which celebrates the 100 year anniversary of the BBC and broadcasting. A high profile exhibition, Broadcast Pioneers at the NSMM will explore the science and technology of broadcast from the history and development of the technologies in use today to the possible future of broadcasting.
The first part of the exhibition ‘100 years of Broadcasting’ will take visitors on a journey from the first BBC radio programmes in 1922 to TV and the rise of streaming operations such as YouTube and Netflix.
The second part of the exhibition ‘Broadcast Futures’ will build on the foundations of the 100 Year of Broadcasting and extrapolate a possible future of media production and broadcast. Gallery 2 will become an immersive experience based on the emerging technologies of today.
The successful pitch will be aligned with the National Science and Media Museums’ Broadcast Pioneers exhibition, and explore the theme ‘The Future of Broadcasting’. This high profile exhibition is part of the Science Museum Group’s coordinated exhibitions to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the BBC, and the 40 year anniversary of Channel 4.
The installation will push new boundaries in immersive storytelling and it will complement an immersive installation and series of experiences that will happen in and around Bradford Library during July 2022.
Expressions of interest close on Friday 1 October 2021 at 5pm.
