Innovative Rooms invitation

DEMO DAY 22.5.2023 at 1-6.30 p

Artistic Creation and Music Teaching at the Speed of Light

Welcome to Innovative Rooms demo day about remote creative collaboration! During the day, the work with low latency performing arts will be presented at Riksteatern. We also pay a visit to Net Insight, which manufactures the Nimbra technology used in remote collaboration. The day ends at the Stockholm University College of Music Education, where we get to follow a music lesson where the teacher is in Stockholm and the student is in Mariehamn in the Åland Islands. The aim of the day is to demonstrate the format and inspire new collaborations. A network connection with low latency makes it possible to develop the digital format of the performing arts, distance pedagogy, promote cultural equality for minorities and strengthen democratic processes, contribute to less travel and thus to a reduced footprint on the environment.

Registration before May 18th:

Our partners in Tampere University have received fundig for two projects that include remote technology, MAGICS: National Infrastructure for human virtualization and remote presence (in collaboration with Helsinki University of Arts) and Live + Digital Audiences: The future of culture’s powerhouses (LiDiA).


Helsinki University of arts focuses on measuring and digitizing human activity; TAU for multimodal bodily interaction, game cultures, visual information presentation, and visual building digital worlds; Uniarts illuminates this whole from an artistic perspective. In collaboration with their industry partners, they research and develop shared digital spaces and remote presence.


LiDiA rebuilds the preconditions and possibilities of the performing arts: Its artistic work and research boldly follow the view that the sustainable and secure future of large audiences arises only from the hybrid operation of cultural powerhouses, small and medium-sized event houses and producers. Hybrid art simultaneously reaches an immediate, physical experience with international, virtual audiences.
