Watch this Space for the IM Showcase 2019!

Thank you for those that attended in 2018!

What Is The IM Showcase?

Last year's event.

A brand new event organised and run by the Interactive Media BSc students to share their work created over the year. It runs for the whole weekend!

Those studying Interactive Media at the University of York have a wide range of skills and have produced many different interactive products and prototypes. Enjoy a riveting interactive narrative, learn how not to text and drive, collect coins as a goose around the university campus or read a thesis on the intersection of technology and love - whatever you might enjoy, we’ll certainly have something to keep you entertained. We are talented, motivated and ready to take on the Interactive Media world, be sure to see the start of our journey.
