After Hours: WITCiH 'The State of Gender?'
After Hours: WITCiH ‘The State of Gender?’ in partnership with Watershed
Join us and Watershed as we invite Bishi – Artistic Director and Co-Founder of WITCiH – to curate an evening of music, performance and workshops celebrating creative technology and the women using it.
As well as performing live on the night, Bishi will invite an exclusive line up of local and national artists and DJ’s from the WITCiH to perform alongside her. In the past they’ve included Mira Calix, Gazelle Twin & Ana Matronic. A full line up will follow shortly.
Upstairs in the Planetarium, our own Anna Henley will take you behind the scenes, live coding your journey through the universe.
The whole venue will be open for you to explore without the kids around, and filled with a series of performances from residents from the Pervasive Media Studio and workshops from local researchers.
In the Box gallery, artist Juliet Robson presents hertz. Using chladni plates, she creates beautiful patterns made by inaudible sounds of far flung stars.
Our bars are open all evening and the Pizza Bike will be serving up delicious pizza too (outside by the entrance - you can come and go as you please).

What is Gift Aid?
If you’re a UK taxpayer and make a donation of at least 10%, as a charity, We The Curious can claim an extra 25p in every pound from the Government (registered charity number 1049954).
It’s called a Gift Aid visit and, it makes a huge difference to charities like us. As a big thank you, we will give you back your donation in vouchers to spend in our café or bar! Your donations will go towards our learning and local community projects. Thank you!
Tickets from £7.95, pre-book online
