Artist’s walks and talks will run alongside a Wikipedia edit-a-thon of women walking artists, an open mic pecha-kucha, a ‘walkie-talkie’ mobile workshop, and a library of walking women books.
From Sophie Calle to Marina Abramovic, Nancy Holt to Patti Smith, Michele Bernstein to Janet Cardiff, women across the arts have long used walking in their creative practice: as method, outcome, performance, transgression, protest, radical reclamation of space and everyday action. This series of events acknowledges and celebrates their work, sharing practice through walking art works, talks and discussions.
Curated by Clare Qualmann, Amy Sharrocks and Dee Heddon, in collaboration with the Walking Institute and Forest Fringe.Book tickets
