Parallel to the infamous Black Friday there is also the Buy Nothing Day. Artist Ted Dave founded Buy Nothing Day in Vancouver, Canada, already 30 years ago and it became a worldwide event, including as well the invitation to not only avoid shopping, but keep electric appliances off during the whole day, not traveling anywhere by car, and not use mobile phones.
What fits better to express your objection to our consumer-based culture than to take a walk, with friends, with family, enjoying one of the last and free non-consuming activities left.
Walking is a message to slow down, and transforms Black Friday into Walk Friday.
Nothing less relevant is our next walk · listen · café. This Tuesday, Nov 29 at 7pm (UK), Molly Wagner, inspired by a major Australian peace walk, will talk about her walks around New South Wales, captured in her book "No Trespassing”. Join us.
"Whether your walk is a stroll on familiar pathways or a multiday hike through rugged terrain, a commute to work, a pilgrimage, or for fun, a walk made in solitude or with friends, with curiosity, joy, fitness, grief, or revolution in mind, a walk is your personal, creative act of Walking Art."
