Studio resident Bethan Harris will share her work on the Loneliness Lab, a collective of individuals and organisations working together to design loneliness out of our cities through reimagining the places and spaces where we live, work and play with connection in mind.
During the talk Bethan will share learnings from the Loneliness Lab so far, and open up a discussion about how we might all tackle loneliness in places and spaces in Bristol and beyond. As part of the talk, Bethan will also discuss personal experiences of loneliness.
This is a great talk to come along to if anything mentioned above resonates with you and you'd like to make more meaningful connections in Bristol. To hear more about the Loneliness Lab you can listen to Bethan's recent appearance on Woman's Hour here.
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.
