How we organise

We’re a bit fed up with bureaucracy & hierarchies around us, and we wanted to try a different way… so we decided to become a self-organising community.

Self-organising teams choose how best to accomplish their work rather than being directed by others. This means that VCL members can manage their own projects in whatever way they want. This also means that it’s up to you to get things done and find what you need.

You can join VCL and become an active member, if you are part of an active project or if you get accepted with our own project. Once the project is over you can join another project.

Tips for joining our community

It helps to be proactive to meet other people and join projects. Don’t wait for something to happen – make it happen yourself!

If you apply with your own project, make sure that it fits our mission statement & core values (see below). You can also contact us at any time if you have further questions about VirtualCinemaLab. Be prepared to submit a summary of your project plan in order to apply.

Projects can be anything! For example: artistic projects, workshops, lecture series, research projects, game jams or even an AR party, as long as it contributes to our community and is relevant for VirtualCinemaLab.

How to meet other members

You can check active projects on our website and contact the project managers. If they need your skills in their project that can be a shortcut to becoming a member.

But you don’t have to be a member to be part of our community. If you sign up to the newsletter and join our upcoming events, you can get to know us and see how you would fit in. You can also check out the upcoming events here, or follow us on facebook & instagram.

We arrange regular XR Encounters sessions – a place to meet, chat and learn from other like-minded people.
