This is the third episode of the podcast in search of a name. In the first we talked music with singer song writer Sonja Sleator, Stuart Lunn of Chase the River and Ross Moffett who runs Popup.

Last time, an insight into radio with John Rosborough and Peter McVerry of U105. Both episodes are available and you can get them here at

In this, the third in this series we have an extended interview with artist Deepa Mann-Kler. I spoke to her in the co-working space at the Ormeau Baths, once municipal bathing house, then after being closed for many years it re-opened as a gallery and now a place where many new and some established tech-businesses share space, facilities and ideas.

Deepa talks about her journey from being a teenage photographer, studying social policy at the LSE in London,  moving to Belfast to work as an equality officer in the city,  becoming an artist and now a creator of virtual reality and immersive experiences.
