As we make the most of these last glorious days of summer, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our very own Autumnal real ale – Watershed Pale Ale. Using the best of local produce, Watershed Pale Ale is brewed using Herefordshire hops, in keeping with our Plot to Plate ethos to stay local and ethical.
With your help some of Watershed's brightest ideas and talent will have a chance to head over to Austin, Texas to take part in South by Southwest (SXSW), the global conference that brings together people doing interesting things with technology for a packed programme of panels and debate.
With a focus on collaborative creativity and emerging ideas across the arts, sciences and humanities, SXSW is a brilliant opportunity for Watershed to champion some of the pioneering work created in Bristol and the UK, and to connect with an international audience.
This autumn, twelve exceptional Digital Producers will join Watershed and National Theatre Wales to participate in a new programme that fosters digital talent, and aims to catalyse development of creative technology projects in Wales.
Supported by Arts Council Wales, Watershed’s Digital Producers Lab is the first programme of its kind to take place in the country. It aims to train a brilliant cohort of Digital Producers, who will go on to support each other, create new business opportunities and enable audiences to enjoy extraordinary new cultural experiences.
You may remember that four months ago we made a few changes and stopped printing a monthly brochure (you can read our reasons for doing so here). We said at the time that we would check in with you to see what impact, if any, this has had on you and how you feel about Watershed now, so that's exactly what we’re doing.
If you were not able to join us on Monday night at Watershed for the spectacular Jan Lisiecki From Every Angle, streamed live from the Bristol Old Vic as part of #BristolProms then you can see an edited version of it as the first part of Piano Night on More 4 this Saturday 3 August at 20.00.
