Following last year’s successful Latin American tour, Sheffield Doc/Fest announces the first ever Alternate Realities Touring Exhibition to three UK venues, then onwards to locations in Canada and Argentina.

The Alternate Realities Exhibition is a leading forum showcasing immersive and interactive story worlds. Opening this evening at Trafalgar Warehouse Sheffield, as part of Doc/Fest’s 25th edition, the gallery exhibition, supported by Arts Council England, pushes the boundaries of audience experience across 27 VR, interactive documentary, gaming and augmented reality projects.

From this summer, the Alternate Realities Touring Exhibition 2018 will travel to London, Brighton and Bradford, with venues comprising the Barbican, London (20-27 August), Lighthouse as part of Brighton Digital Festival (21-30 September) and to the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford (5-14 October), in the lead up to and during the Widescreen Weekend. The UK tour is being support by Arts Council England as part of Doc/Fest’s newly acquired National Portfolio Organisation funding, and presented in partnership with each of the venues involved.

Beyond the UK, the tour goes international – including to Phi Centre, Montreal, Canada (24 August - 2 September) and to Noviembre Electronico Festival, Buenos Aires, Argentina (9-17 November). The international tour 2018 is supported by British Council, following the co-presentation of a successful tour to Latin America for the first time last year.
