Walking arts today became a response to the deep environmental  global crisis we are facing today.  Walking is one of the keys to contextualize and deepen our understanding and relation with the planet place we live on. It is more and more clear that the future will be ecological or there will not be a future for our species.         

Walking our planet is the opportunity to explore this question.  The sounds, the living creatures, the plants, the geopoetics of every place are some of the factors that connect us to a Nature that is experienced and lived. Walking in and beyond Prespa is stepping out of the time and space of the man-made environment, entering in a no man’s land of nature, bringing us back what was before and to where we belong.

Speakers are Mar Alzamora (Panama), Chris Omni (US), Simona Vermeire (Romania), Geert Vermeire and Fred Adam (Belgium/Spain), Stephanie Whitelaw (UK), Rich Blundell (US), moderated by Faye Tzanetoulakou.
The speakers were asked to provide a presentation of their work, in preparation for the café:

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. Prerecorded paper presentations and other media will be available in this post at least 48 hours before the Walk Listen Café starts, and the participants are requested to look into the online materials before joining the Café.

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.
