Lunchtime Talk: The Evolution of Theatre Jukebox

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

When: 26 April 2013 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Stand + Stare will take us through a brief history of their arcade-style storytelling project, Theatre Jukebox, as it evolved from a micro-residency in the Studio in June 2011 to being nominated for this year's SXSW Interactive Awards.

Brother and sister, Barney and Lucy Heywood, run Stand + Stare and are the minds behind Theatre Jukebox. They will talk about how the project has developed from a small idea in a bar to something that has become a core part of their business.

Bringing the journey up to date, Lucy and Barney will talk about how being at SXSW has helped to focus their work. They will discuss how the conference made them think about their love of old things and how they are trying to create a bridge between new and old technology by honouring and harnessing both the digital and the physical.

There will be an opportunity for people to have a go on the Jukebox during Open Studio Friday on a first come first serve basis.

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? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday.

Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who’s interested in what we do.

After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm.
