XR Stories’ internships offered businesses based in the Yorkshire and Humber region the opportunity to engage with talented students and graduates. Internships run for up to 12 weeks and take the form of a creative project, with an emphasis on emerging technologies. Full funding was available to support businesses wishing to host an intern, but is now closed. Internship projects are now underway and will be completed by December 2022.
Pilot Theatre, a York based theatre company, hosted an intern to work on their immersive storytelling project, Monoliths. Lucy Hammond, from Pilot Theatre, said “Lucy was exceptional in her role as an intern, she was a great asset to our team and undertook each task with professionalism. Her input into the project has been invaluable and we were so glad to have her working with us.”
Take a look at some of the recent internship projects we have funded to discover how businesses have benefited from this scheme and the scope of the projects supported.
