Virtual Reality Residencies

Watch street artists make three-dimensional art in virtual reality


9th September 2017

What time

11:00am - 8:00pm



14-18 Broad Street,





Throughout September, we're challenging some of Nottingham's most talented artists to test their skills in virtual reality.

We've teamed up with The Anti Gallery, who celebrate urban culture by creating pop up arts experiences outside of traditional gallery spaces, to offer a series of three short residencies here at Broadway.

On Saturdays throughout September, artists will be experimenting with new technology and techniques to create three-dimensional art in virtual reality using Tilt Brush, a Google-developed application for painting in 3D space.

The artists will be experimenting with Tilt Brush in public view in Broadway's Mezzanine Lounge. The artists' work will also be livestreamed online, so you'll be able to watch their work progress throughout the day from anywhere.
