This November we brought together a group of young creatives from across the Western Balkans to take part in designing the future of broadcasting by working with the BBC, Mixed reality laboratory Databox and the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT). As part of our PlayUK programme, The Living Room of the Future’ workshop was held at the regional innovation forum ‘Sarajevo Unlimited’, a regional platform for innovators, start-ups, talents and change makers organised by business, creative and innovation centre Networks INT.
The topics of future media, storytelling and Object-Based Media (OBM) were also introduced to the broader audiences of the Forum, with Ian Forrester talk on the main stage and the BBC Blue Room.
Two selected participants from the workshop will get an opportunity to continue their work with the trainers during unique residency experience in the UK, where they will transform their idea into reality. Two winners are yet to be announced.
