Lunchtime Talks at the Pervasive Media Studio

Who Do You Think You Are?

Who Do You Think You Are?

Lunchtime Talks are a series of informal presentations at Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio. They normally take place at 13:00 on a Friday, are free and are open to everybody who is interested in what they do. Come along, bring a sandwich, and get to know more about the Studio community, current and up-coming projects, or residents' work.

In this mad world filled with uncertainty, what are the value systems and measures of success we operate to that are in need of a system update, and how can social game play, stories and experiences help us to reframe who we are and how we can live happier lives?

In this Lunchtime Talk studio resident Harmeet Chagger-Khan, a film maker and Creative Producer talks about Elixir of Life - an augmented reality story-game played on the city's streets, where players go on a quest for immortality and inadvertently unlock their own potential. This is part of a larger body of research exploring how locative storytelling and game play can create positive behaviour change in order to adapt our rules for living and build mental resilience.

The Pervasive Media Studio is located within the Watershed building. Let us know if you'd like a tour and we'll be happy to show you around. Send an email to studio@watershed.co.uk
