The Active Travel Academy at the University of Westminster and London Living Streets invite you to join us on-line on 11th May at 5pm when [email protected] will celebrate the Spring.

Our subject is walking and creativity and we’ll be ably assisted by two speakers:

Matthew Beaumont is a Professor of English Literature and a Co-Director of UCL’s Urban Lab, where he is responsible for the Cities Imaginaries strand. His publications include: The Walker: On Losing and Finding Oneself in the Modern City (Verso, 2020), a series of chapters on writers including Chesterton, Dickens, Ford, Wells and Woolf, all of whom have placed the experience of walking in the metropolis at the centre of their attempts to understand and represent modernity; and Nightwalking: A Nocturnal History of London, Chaucer to Dickens (Verso, 2015). He is currently writing a history of literature about London.

Eugene Quinn, a Brit living in Vienna, has created a series of tours focused on locals exploring their city from new perspectives, including smells, ugliness, midnight, smartness and feminism for men. He will speak here about the benefits of walking for developing your ideas, and present some key figures who used urban walking in their practice.

We very much hope we’ll see you there.

Organisers: Tom Cohen, University of Westminster, and Emma Griffin and David Harrison, London Living Streets and Footways.London
