About the New Dimensions Lab
Now in its 4th year, the New Dimensions Lab brings together diverse African artists to develop stories told through creative technology alongside leading industry mentors.

The Lab takes place over the course of a week at a private retreat where artists engage in discussions and masterclasses, and workshop their creative projects. 5 to 8 applicants will be selected to participate.

Past mentors have included Jessica Brillhart (Google, Vrai Pictures), Jim Chuchu (The Nest Collective), Darren Emerson (VR City), Selly Raby Kane, Kamal Sinclair (Sundance New Frontier), Eden Labs, Yasmin Elayat (Scatter), and Oscar Raby (VRTOV).

Electric South fully covers travel, accommodation and meals for participants.
