URBAN JUNGLE: A FESTIVAL OF ART AND PERFORMANCE IN YOUR POCKET
Urban Jungle is the virtual companion to CVX Festival: a series of virtual street performances in your pocket. Download the app and visit locations across FarGo Village to encounter up-and-coming and established Coventry and West Midlands talent emerging through portals to perform virtually – through the magic of smartphone augmented reality – for you. Enjoy rap, spoken word, vocal harmony, Beatboxing, dance, circus, and calisthenics, plus a virtual exhibition shining a spotlight on Coventry’s next generation.
Information on how to download the free Urban Jungle AR app, and how to use it to access the experiences at FarGo Village, will be released on our website and social media the week of the festival.
Urban Jungle was originally developed by JellyBob and Rebel Creatives working in collaboration with young creatives at Positive Youth Foundation, with funding and R&D support from StoryFutures Academy and Create Central, with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery. Urban Jungle at CVX Festival was commissioned by Coventry City of Culture Trust.
