Our Lab programme brings together artists and technologists to investigate how emerging technology can improve the way we tell stories.  Working outside the pressure of standard production cycles, the labs are a workshop space for creatives to explore new tech hands on.  Our engagement is often short-term, acting as a catalyst for new ideas or skills that go on to be developed elsewhere.  Click the links below to find out more.  New labs and opportunities to take part are posted here, and on our blogroll.
