The Barnaby Virtual Reality Parade -Vision 2020
Macclesfield based artist Jacki Clark presents an R&D work in association with Barnaby: the Barnaby Virtual Reality Parade – Vision 2020.
This work is part of Barnaby’s work in 2020 to explore alternative, accessible and inclusive events and cultural activities. This responds directly from our open programming sessions in 2019 with adults and young people in Macclesfield.
Our Young Producers programme working with Space4Autism had many great ideas about how to make the parade accessible. McCann Manchester provided a Creative Lab to develop these ideas and we have been supported by the National Trust, Manchester Camerata and Cheshire Eye Society.
Using VR was one of these ideas and we’re excited to see Jacki’s response to this. Barnaby was looking at “going digital” before the pandemic and lockdown and we will be continuing to think about and develop alternative approaches as part of our commitment to accessible and inclusive cultural activities.

Detail about the work
Over the years there have been many ideas about what we would like to create in the Barnaby Parade. We’ve had dragons, flying horses, aliens….what if we had the opportunity to do absolutely anything we wanted? Any size….shape….well that’s the beauty of virtual reality. We may be constrained physically this year but there’s no constraint on our imaginations and creativity and anyone can view it wherever they are….Welcome to the Barnaby Festival Virtual Reality Parade 2020. A different Vision. Created by Jacki Clark and videoed in Google Tiltbrush using an Oculus Rift headset.
