Get on our curated mailing list

We’ve been sending out an automated weekly mailing for a while. Some clever automated selection meant this weekly newsletter was reasonably well curated, selecting only the more interesting news and updates from the previous week.

Now, we’re levelling up. Thanks to kind sponsors, we’re able to spend the time building a carefully curated weekly newsletter, looking back on the previous week, and ahead to the next, selecting the most relevant news from around the world related to walking art, highlighting updates from contributors from throughout our network, and focussing on interesting upcoming events.

Our first kind sponsors have been Dérive app and guidemate. Dérive app helps to get you lost; guidemate is the platform for audio walks, where you find audio guides for sight seeing, artistic audio walks and educational tours created by schools or universities.

If you’re interested in becoming our next sponsor, take a look at our previous mailings, and how you can work with us.

If you’re on the fence, do stay up to date with what’s happening in the world of walking art. Sign up to our weekly curated newsletter!

São Paulo, State of São Paulo, Brazil

Known as “The cry of Ipiranga”, the exclamation, by Dom Pedro I, was the moment Brazil became independent, in 1822, 200 years ago. To mark the historic moment, going back and forward in time, I’ll take a circular walk through São Paulo.
