In this Lunchtime Talk we will meet some of the authors / co-authors of Collective Wisdom: Co-Creating Media for Equity and Justice which observes that co-creation is everywhere; from massive prehistoric rock carvings to the birth of the internet...
But it's easy to miss. Individuals often take credit for—and profit from—collective forms of authorship, erasing whole cultures and narratives as they do so. Collective Wisdom offers the first guide to co-creation as a concept and as a practice, tracing co-creation from collaborative journalism to human–AI partnership.
This talk is presented in partnership with i-Docs and will be chaired by Mandy Rose, Professor of Documentary & Digital Cultures at UWE Bristol and Co-Convenor of the i-Docs Symposium.

Open Studio Fridays
From 10:00 - 17:00 you can stay at the Studio for Open Studio Fridays - join us to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. The Studio provides chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Tell us what you’re up to, or allow us to facilitate conversations within the resident community. Studio staff and residents will be around to chat, answer questions, or tell you more about what we do. The open afternoons close at 17:00, sometimes with a trip to the Café & Bar.
Where to find us
The Lunchtime Talks take place in the Pervasive Media Studio, which is in the Watershed building. The Studio is just beyond the Café & Bar, turn right and then go down the corridor to your left (where the toilets are). The double doors here will be open, go 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.
