Where would I have been without Rife?
This week we will be joined by Rife Magazine, Watershed's online magazine for young people and most importantly by young people. We will hear from two of Rife's alumni who are now Studio residents.
Rife offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers through giving them a platform, skills and networks. Two of Rife’s alumni Jon Aitken and Tim Lo are now active Pervasive Media Studio residents working in the intersection between tech and filmmaking and dance respectively. In this talk they share their personal stories about their creative and professional journeys. Reflecting on how development programmes delivered by arts organisations for young people can support creative talent. What worked well? How can we do more of this work? What do we need to do better?
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday. Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who’s interested in what we do. After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm. Let us know if you’d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around just before the talk.
