PlayUK is the British Council’s Western Balkans platform that aims to support and develop the audio-visual sector in the region. Through creating connections between professionals from the UK and Western Balkans countries, the PlayUK programme supports knowledge and skills transfer in the areas of virtual reality, augmented reality, visual effects and animation, creating a unique bridge between creatives and the ICT sector.
Programme highlights in Skopje will include an interactive digital showcase introducing the latest and greatest in the field of VR and AR installations, video games, mobile apps and more; the Living Room of the Future workshop hosted by FACT, which explores the future of broadcasting; a workshop hosted by 2018 Turner Prize shortlisted nominee, Forensic Architecture, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Skopje; as well as a daily music programme run by DJs from across the Western Balkans and the UK. Dozens of digital media creatives and experts from across the Western Balkans will be invited to stay in Skopje and take part in the scheduled programmes.
