Tue 6 Sep 17:30-21:00 at Pervasive Media Studio
A space for 18-30 year old creatives to come together
Make Shift is a space for 18-30 year old creatives to come together in the Pervasive Media Studio at Watershed on the first Tuesday evening of each month. This is an opportunity to meet other creative people in the city, use one of our hot desk spaces, seek advice on projects you're working on or next steps in your career in a welcoming environment.
Each month we’ll have a guest from the Pervasive Media Studio working in the creative industries who will speak about their practice and can give advice. Guest speakers will be experts in their field, anything from a VR film maker to a finance professional.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Make Shift session in August. We're taking a break for the summer holidays and will be back in September.
As part of September's Make Shift, artist Lucy J Turner will share thoughts about visual storytelling.
Lucy J Turner is a Bristol based artist, digital illustrator, activist and creator. She has worked on projects with Rife Magazine, Watershed, Creative Youth Network, Rising Arts Agency, Arnolfini, Black minds Matter UK, 91 Ways, Shelby X Studios and Rockett St George.
Lucy will explore the importance of visual storytelling and how it pervades the world around us. She will share her approach to developing creative work and invite you to participate in a fun / informative visual storytelling activity.
We can't wait to welcome you!
The hosted element of the event will start at 17:30 and finish at 19:30. After that attendees are welcome to continue conversations or make use of our hot desks to do your own work in the Pervasive Media Studio until 21:00.
There is no need to pre-book. Head to the Café & Bar and then follow directions to Pervasive Media Studio.
If drop in systems aren't accessible for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book in. When you book in, we will link you up with a member of our team who will reach out to find out where you would like them to meet you and what time you will arrive. That team member can also arrange a time for you to visit the Studio for a 1-2-1 tour so you can familiarise yourself with our space before attending. We have a dedicated quiet space and dedicated quiet desks area, which all visitors are welcome to use.

About Pervasive Media Studio
The Pervasive Media Studio hosts an international community of over 100 artists, companies, technologists, and academics exploring experience design and creative technology.
We are a space for risk taking and early ideas; for the kind of projects and questions that inhabit the meeting points of art, technology, and society.
Our projects span play, robotics, location-based media, food, connected objects, interactive documentary, new forms of performance and more. We have an open plan studio with a culture if generosity, curiosity, and interruptibility. We believe that by clustering people together from a broad range of backgrounds, with differing skills, experience, and opinions, all of our ideas become better.
