Center for Immersive Arts

We’re preserving the history of immersive arts and entertainment.

The Center for Immersive Arts (CFIA) is dedicated to collaboratively preserving the history of immersive theater, escape rooms, Alternate Reality Games (ARGs), theme parks, art installations, XR/VR, and more.

We’re creating educational resources, helping restore old websites, digitizing artifacts and ephemera, and designing online archives and digital museum exhibitions.
