To celebrate the return of spring, Coney is presenting three outdoor adventures inviting you to explore your locality in new and exciting ways.

Wander among the graves of your local cemetery, find the perfect instagram spot or discover the secret powers near where you live or work, in these three exciting work-in-progress pieces by Coney artists.

Artists Afreena Islam-Wright and Mark Croasdale take you on an interactive storytelling journey in your local cemetery.

Grab your smartphone and a pair of headphones and walk with them as they share their stories: stories of funerals, of loss of loved ones and strangers, of longing and avoiding, of religion and faith…

This new work-in-progress show explores our relationship with grief and the spaces connected to it.

This is an individual audio piece that can be played at any time during the day in any cemetery: then join us for a drink in the Coney Zoom Bar to meet the artists and share stories.

‘Don’t walk to your tune, walk carefully’

Indian city dweller Samprati Pani draws on her walking practices as an anthropologist interested in the making of public places in the city. Through an ethnography of walking practices performed in the bazaars of Delhi, the talk will illustrate how walking in the bazaar, even for a solitary walker, is a social activity because its rhythm and pace is continuously modulated in relation to others and the materiality of the place.
