From education to entertainment, engineering to manufacturing, design and technology to marketing, hospitality and healthcare – immersive digital technologies, such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR) - are changing the way we experience the world.
Our workshops offer people of all ages and from all backgrounds unique opportunities to discover these new technologies, to help people develop an essential blend of digital and creative / artistic skills essential to getting ahead.
Working with Schools, Colleges & Charities
Bridging the digital & creative skills gap
Many organisations are reporting a shortage of suitable candidates who have both creative and digital skills.
We believe the only way to bridge this skills gap is to work directly with educators - like you -to provide learners of all abilities and from different backgrounds with opportunities to be excited and inspired by these new technologies.
That's why we're working with schools, colleges and charities to:
Offer on-site dedicated immersive technology workshops covering: digital storytelling techniques, 3D modelling, designing in VR, through to AR app design.
Enable you to access and use immersive experiences to supplement and enhance learning.
Help you to achieve a return on investment from, and offer expert advice on, any immersive tech you have purchased.
We're also proud to be an Arts Award Supporter (see below for more details).

Proud to be an Arts Award Supporter!
Bright Immersive workshops offer a fun and modern way for creative young people to work towards achieving their Arts Award. We can partner with Arts Awards Centres across SE England and London, to offer unique opportunities for young artists to discover, use and create immersive art, while developing valuable digital skills crucial to their successful futures.
Our workshops offer an accessible introduction to the most intuitive and versatile of all the Digital Arts – virtual reality, augmented reality and 3D design.
We will inspire participants by showing them the amazing possibilities immersive technologies offer artists and we will give them opportunities to create and share their own immersive artwork
Silver Arts Award
A Bright Immersive workshop is a great starting point for anyone looking to work on a Digital Project and use technology as part of the Arts Challenge component of the Silver Award. With our expert insight, we’ll help you get off to a flying start and signpost artists to helpful resources
Our workshops are an excellent opportunity to take part in an arts activity and to see how existing arts skills translate to the immersive space (such as sculpture) and discover how the latest technologies can be used to enhance many aspects of older artforms, such as storytelling and theatre.
Gold Arts Award
We can help the artists working towards their Gold Award to connect with others working in the digital immersive space as well as provide expert support to inspire students to experiment
with new digital arts tools, and discover opportunities to showcase their work as part of the Arts Practice aspects of the award.
