This year's Meet the Maker sessions took place across three venues:
The Crucible Adelphi hosted three sessions featuring discussions on 6 projects featuring in Subconscious Sensibilities, the Alternate Realities Exhibition.
The Hallam Performance Lab, home to this year's VR Cinema Programme, Converging Sensibilties, will hold four sessions, allowing audiences to discuss a film with the artist just after watching
The Doc/Fest Exchange on Tudor Square presented artists from seven projects within the Alternate Realities Exhibition and VR Cinema, as part of the Planetary Health programme of talks.
Our Meet the Maker sessions are a great chance for audiences to chat face to face with the artists who have made the projects they are experiencing as part of the programme, and to ask them questions about the inspiration, challenges or process in developing the projects.
