In April 2015, Bristol’s creative community gathered in the sunshine for a networking event with a difference: our very first WLTM session. Curators, performance artists, musicians and photographers gathered alongside sound designers, writers and educators (to name just a few) to meet each other and view a special live performance by artist Rachael Miles. Rachael performed a new work called FTSE 100, a wry biography presented through the structure of the index of the 100 largest companies listed on the London Stock Exchange.
In July we held the second WLTM event inviting all to take part in the Run to Knowle West challenge and participate in ‘The Ascent’, a new art experience made by CHAMP.
For the winter version everyone joined us for a special anti-Xmas party. The event included Tom Marshman’s performance ‘A Place in the Sun’ followed by an evening of conversation, sangria and, as always, a chance for people to meet their next creative collaborator.
In January 2016 we were joined by Bristol Hack Space, University of Bristol, the SPHERE project and KWMC’s Junior Digital Producers who all shared interactive exhibits and opened up conversations around our Citizen Sensing project. The event drew a great range of technologists, creatives and data analysts.
We hold WLTMs regularly. If you’d like to come along please get in touch with Martha King at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make sure you get a special invitation.
At every WLTM an artist is invited to share a presentation of their work. If you are an artist interested in sharing and testing new work in a friendly and supportive space, please get in contact with Melissa at email@example.com. Find out more about our Associates Scheme here.
