Pervasive Media Studio Lunchtime Talk: Mike Bennett - Bristol's Placemaker

Where: Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, 1 Canon's Road, Bristol, BS1 5TX

When: 27 January 2012 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Last year, Mike Bennett took up the role of Bristol's Place Making Director. "Why?", many asked, did this serial entrepreneur who has spent his entire professional life starting and running businesses (e3, Goldbrick House & Bristol Media) want to take take us this hugely controversial role and join the public sector? Mike's biggest project to date was See No Evil and he's currently plotting a whole host of new ideas for 2012. He's currently collocating with us at the Studio and in his talk he will be unpicking what it means to be a place maker and how the studio and wider community can get involved in shaping the city. This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week. Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio?
