Remote walking – walking with prompts

2021-07-06 18:00

Online

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. 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.

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.

Into the Night: An Evening of Nocturnal Wanderings

2022-12-20 19:00

Online

A gathering on the night before the longest night. This is the nocturnal world, the place we walk illuminated by constellations of twinkling skies and powerful planets; the locale where our perambulations offer other ways of dwelling and sensing our being in the world and its myriad human and non-human presences. Join us as we stroll together, physically and conceptually, sharing our stories, experiences, feelings, senses and night-time reveries. An evening with the moon and Fay Stevens.
