Lunchtime Talks

Lunchtime Talks

Lunchtime Talks are a series of informal presentations hosted by Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio. They usually take place at 13:00 on a Friday, are free and are open to everybody who is interested in what they do.

Join us in the building and streaming online (on YouTube). Come along, bring a sandwich, and get to know more about the Studio community, current and up-coming projects, or residents' work.

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.

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.
