In 2024, Watershed are opening a new exhibition space on the harbourside, directly to the right hand side of the box office. One of the first of its kind in the UK, Undershed will be dedicated to showing interactive and immersive work on an ongoing basis. 

Building out from the cinema programme that Watershed offers, with this space we aim to engage audiences with big ideas and smart questions - and each other. Led by the work and by the experience - rather than new technological gimmicks - come to this talk to find out why we need this space, what's on the menu and how to get involved.

Amy Rose is the Lead Curator of Undershed. Long-time studio resident (more than 10 years!), Amy co-founded Anagram in 2013 - a creative production studio specialising in immersive experiences and innovative non-fiction storytelling. Multiple awards and many journeys later, she is now curating programmes, building networks, and working out how to make immersive pieces really work together - in a deep, meaningful and playful way for audiences.

Join us online on YouTube Live, or in the building on Friday 15th March 2024 at 1pm for the talk and to take part in the Q and A discussion afterwards. 

The Pervasive Media Studio is a partnership between the Watershed, University of the West of England and University of Bristol. The lunchtime talks are partly supported by MyWorld, a project led by the University of Bristol to support creative industries in the region. Watershed is supported by Arts Council England.

The Lunchtime talks take place in the Pervasive Media Studio Event Space. To access the Studio, please go to the Main Watershed Box Office entrance and go upstairs to the Café Bar. Walk across the cafe bar, turn right and walk towards the double doors. Go through into the corridor and walk all the way down until you reach the Studio. A member of staff will sign you in, and check your ticket, if you have booked.

The Studio is wheelchair accessible, and the events space has a hearing loop. The last talk of every month is BSL interpreted.
