Can You Hear Me Now?

Lunchtime Talks at the Pervasive Media Studio


Please note: This event took place in April 2018

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.

Can You Hear Me Now, was a reflection on digital connectivity in partnership with MAYK performed simultaneously in three different countries during November 2017.

Casts of young people in Bristol, Kampala and Kigali communicated via social media before the event and live-streamed during it, expressing what digital connectivity means to them and discussing their similarities and differences. It was created by Caroline Williams in Bristol, working with her counterparts Brian Geza at the Mashirika performing arts group in Kigali, and Muhawenimana Sarafina in Kampala. Can You Hear Me Now was a MAYK production with funding from the British Council.

In this Lunchtime Talk, Caroline Williams and Tim Kindberg, who created the live-streaming component, will consider the piece from several perspectives: artistic, cross-cultural, logistical and technical.

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
