I Am Scared - an experiment in VR/360

Late last year I was fortunate to be awarded a Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council Wales. 

Im interested in the 3rd Industrial Revolution and what roles art can/will play in the revolution.

As a part of my award I proposed to make three artistic responses throughout the year, creating something that is inspired by what I have learnt up to that point.



I have just spent a week creating the first response, A VR/360 video…

Hi there Gavin

Hope you're well.

I have just noticed  your post regarding RATS and am extremely interested. 

My NTW page is nothing to go by, in fact this is the first time i have looked at it in a while, tending to get my online-found jobs from Spotlight.

I would love to apply for this and audition. I have a huge love for hiphop and am very knowledgeable about it. I also practice combat and martial arts and am a professionally trained dancer as well as actress.

Rhian Lewis put me on to NTW years ago after watching a performance i was in.. She may remember me :)

I can't wait to hear back from you and hopefully arrange an audition.

Bye for now

Erin Leighton
