The aim of the Ars Electronica Garden STEAMhouse is to communicate how an idea can be developed into an entire ecosystem! We practice what we preach, so ultimately we are here to showcase why STEAM works. Discover our story and the application of STEAM in various contexts from Virtual Reality to Biomaterials. We are STEAMhouse, a center for innovation, creative thinking, prototyping and business development powered by Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math, based in Digbeth, in the heart of Birmingham, UK. We are a partnership between Birmingham City University and Eastside Projects, a local artist-run multiverse. Its aim is to be a space for the open, the curious and the creative that inspires people to experiment, test and develop new knowledge.
STEAMhouse sees that STEAM is centered on collaboration and openness, and believes that those principles are most fully realized when the arts and the sciences are allowed to collide, for the creativity embedded in both to be released.

Birmingham’s highly established Maker Monday event teams up with Ars Electronica for a special workshop. In this interactive session, our amazing special guests Sharon Brunt and Kelly Vero will explore what empathy is and how to use it to design everything from apps, tool and games that are sensitive to users needs, and uplift their lives.

When we say immersive media, what we are really talking about is more of a sensorial catchment Whether that’s your visuals/ sound all around, there may be extra things coming into the picture or coming into play with you that previous media may not have incorporated.
