Workshop 1 Craft Room Belfast Book Festival


One of the Family

A VR experience with SARC and Barnardos NI

Wednesday 13 - Saturday 17 June: 10am - 7pm

Sunday 18 June: 10am - 4pm

A participatory project with Barnardo’s Fostering and Adoption NI and SARC: Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Sound and Music, Queen’s University Belfast

The team from SARC has been working with Barnardos NI and participating families, to create an immersive experience that combines sound, 360º video and projection, to tell foster and adoption stories from a first person perspective. Exploring the everyday, the places and experiences of families, this participatory artwork provides a unique insight into what it is like to be part of a family who foster or adopt in Northern Ireland. 

The Studio will be open for the duration of the Festival and you are welcome to pop by.  As viewing spaces will be limited, and to avoid disappointment, we recommend booking your slot in advance. Click here to book. 

By Pedro Rebelo with Georgios Varoutsos, Andrew Finnerty, Brian Byrne and Vanessa Haynes.
