Lonelight: An AR Horror Experience
In collaboration with UMD's Immersive Media Design program, Lonelight is an augmented reality experience that brings you into the world of a private investigator tasked with solving a missing persons care in an abandoned home. Things are not as they appear, though, and you quickly realize there's nowhere to run or hide. What do you do when you can't even trust your own eyes? Please note that this horror game is not for the faint of heart. Stop by the Encore Bar and sign up to play at your discretion.
This event is part of NextNOW Fest. The Clarice’s NextNOW Fest is an inspiring arts experience that celebrates imagination, creativity and community. By amplifying the voices of intriguing, inventive artists from around campus and our community, NextNOW Fest creates a forward-looking microcosm where art transforms our future and (re)connects us all.
NextNOW Fest is a signature event in University of Maryland's new Arts for All initiative, which leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice to address the grand challenges of our time. In addition to our traditional student, academic and touring arts lineup at The Clarice on Sep 17 and 18, we’re thrilled to forge new partnerships with more student-led groups, academic departments and community organizations to expand the festival to seven days at sites throughout campus and into College Park!
