The pandemic challenged walking artists to engage with new forms and new media for their practice. Group walking was translated into online walking, allowing people around the globe to walk together virtually. Prompts or “walking scores” facilitated pandemic walkers to explore within the limits of their walking spaces, often in surprising and new ways, individually or with other remote walkers. Online technologies permitted to listen into remote spaces, beyond physical reach in the pandemic. During quarantine and isolation new and even larger communities of walkers emerged, often addressing as well the other urgent problems of our planet, climate change and forced migration. In this Walk Listen Café prominent artists discuss remote walking and talk about their new walking projects for the hybrid walking arts encounters/conference Walking as a Question. Moderated by Geert Vermeire. With Fay Stevens, Christopher Kaczmarek, Deirdre Macleod, Jez Riley French, Pheobe Riley Law and the Woolgatherers group.

Walk Listen Café @ WAC brings scholars and artists together around their research and their practices related to walking arts in a series of 8 online meet ups and conversations, of which this is the first.

WAC Walking Arts Encounters/Conference 2021.

Following on from ‘over borders #1’ (also available as a free download) we have curated a PDF collection of scores (photographic, text, graphic) that use the act of walking as a way to question the objectification of environments and the role of ‘stepping back’ from a human centric view of place.

We invite you to explore Prespa, a national park and lake at the border of Greece, Albania and North Macedonia, and a venue of art practice for almost two decades. Art and science, biology and ecology meet in an evening with two panels about Prespa, water and arts, in a dialogue with artists, researchers, scientists and ecologists, a confluence of the Prespa lake with Oika in the US, the El Hondo Wetland in Spain, the wet meadows of Somerset Levels and the waters of Yarun (Bribie Island) in Australia.

Walking arts and walking stories

2021-07-15 18:00

Online

In East and West, for centuries, painters, poets, dancers were walking in the landscape (natural and urban) and finding sources of reference or inspiration. Walking stories are carried in memory and remain existing for as long as there is a body to carry them. Walking is not characterized by one solid approach; it can be drifting, wandering, strolling, aimless, or purposeful. Each one of these practices suggests a body that remembers and they are introducing different approaches of storytelling.
