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.

After the talk, you can stay at the Studio for the afternoon 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). The open afternoons close at 17:00, usually with a trip to the Café/Bar.

The Pervasive Media Studio is located within the Watershed building. Let them know if you’d like a tour of the space and they’ll be happy to show you around! Send an email to [email protected]
