RiT is an international community that aims at both exploring and supporting alternative Extended Reality (XR) productions, and experiment new narratives and creative processes.
RiT aims at building a strong, independent European XR creative and activist community, a think tank to tackle current and future challenges in the digital sector.
RiT wants to consolidate and share XR related knowledge, tools and methodologies. RiT takes a critical look at XR, bringing together creation, curation and dissemination practices with education methods, privacy, ethics and sustainability issues.
RIT supports emerging XR creatives, artists and projects to foster inclusive and sustainable practices into experimental XR creations.
Consolidating existing creative and activist XR initiatives and communities on the one hand means creating opportunities for networking and peer-to-peer learning between existing independent and activist XR initiatives, XR artists, researchers, coders, cultural and creative sector professionals, decision-makers, and the general public interested in XR and coming together to use XR as a common, open and sustainable tool in their work. On the other hand, it implies centralising existing independent and activist XR initiatives and promoting them to help them gain recognition at European level.
