About DOK Exchange

DOK Exchange strives to develop and flourish an international XR community of creators, experts, researchers, producers, storytellers, curators and distributors. 

  • We focus on building openness and equality in the process of knowledge exchange.
  • We critically look at and analyze new directions for the development of XR projects and storytelling to better understand and take sustainable decisions on design, production and distribution processes.
  • This year, we are especially interested in the issue of agency, the direction of social VR experiences development and the principles of designing safe and healthy XR environments. 
  • Additionally, we want to look at alternative sources of financing for XR projects.

DOK Exchange offers two events:

The DOK Exchange Conference 

Brilliant speakers presenting an in-depth look at the various aspects of XR development (on-site with online transmission).

The DOK Exchange Showcase

Six XR cutting-edge projects presenting their work-in-progress in front of an online audience, followed by feedback by experts from the fields of research, funding, distribution, art and technology (online).

  • presenting an innovative and unique approach to storytelling
