Exploring slow travel and bringing together artists who undertake long distance journeys. 

‘Ugly’ Walk
Join a walk led by Anthony Schrag, who walked from Huntly, Aberdeenshire, to the Venice Biennale last year. His route went through towns, cities, urban, sub-urban and human places. This walk looks to explore the ugly landscapes of industrial estates, countering the expectations that a beautiful walk is tied to natural landscapes.

9 - 11 am. Meet at Ocean Terminal, Limited places available. Tickets £5.


This walk will conclude at Summerhall for the following additional free events

11am - 1pm The psychology of long-distance walking

2 - 4pm - Walking to Venice Panel discussion 

4 - 6pm - Europe: Will we walk again?
