When one travels on foot, there is a deliberate slowness, a marking of time, allowing contemplation and consideration of occupied space, one step at a time.  

There are times that one will stumble. Not just physically but also accidentally upon things, events or ideas that otherwise would not have occurred without walking.

By acknowledging these ’stumbles’, being drawn into the unknown, accepting of the mystery that awaits, we as walking artists encounter new tempos and longing, for something greater than just the moment. Not just a wandering but a wondering as well.

Bringing together three very different artists, Alison Lloyd, Michael Branthwaite and Trevor H Smith, as well as researcher Fiona Hesse, this discussion will journey with their moments of stumbling and maybe encounter a shared path….

My #Culture30Walks – How Culture 3.0 is your city?

Online

Carola Boehm starts from the concept of Culture 3.0 to make some walks and document them in a few twitter threads.
