Creative Cohort

Project Overview

Watershed is a cross-artform venue and producer, sharing, developing and showcasing exemplary cultural ideas and talent. We are based in Bristol, but place no boundaries on our desire to connect with artists and audiences in the wider world.

The Being There project seeks to create live research trials in public spaces, engaging non-academic audiences with the themes at the heart of the project and delivering usable study results for the teams. To ensure these trials are meaningful, creative and engaging, Watershed has brought together a group of creative practitioners who will collaborate with the researchers.

From composers and choreographers, to game makers and experience designers, the creative cohort have a broad range of backgrounds and specialisms. Working across the project, Watershed will facilitate a process of labs, workshops, sprints and commissions which will help shape the direction of the research, catalyse new partnerships and collaborations and deliver disruptive, creative and engaging work.
