A three part workshop exploring women’s walking from a range of sensory perspectives

About this event

Using a variety of methods, this series of mini-workshops encourage participants to take part and contribute to ongoing research projects around the issue of women walking. The topic will be explored from a range of sensory perspectives including: an audio workshop on women walking and liminality; a creative movement workshop exploring women walking, communication and diversity, and finally, a visual workshop exploring women’s movement in film. A description of each mini-workshop can be found below.

Walking and Liminality with Catherine Ross, Oxford Brookes University

This workshop will consider women’s walking and liminality. Participants will engage with a binaural recording, and contemplate how the visual and auditory aspects of walking converge in liminal time and space. This multi-sensory, collaborative session will create links between the digital and (im)mobility, creativity, memory, self-knowing, consciousness and atmosphere, encouraging participants to reflect on their own experiences of walking in peripheral spaces.

Knowing and Being in the Professional World with Claire Farmer, Dr Jyoti Navare and Sarah Sulemanji, Middlesex University

This session explores ways in which the practice of and context for walking can facilitate the sharing of dialogues between women from different generations, backgrounds and professions. We will offer some movement explorations and thinking points to take with you on your next walk, as well as moments to explore movement during the presentation. 

The rhythms of our walking and thinking are inextricably linked and impacted by many factors – emotional, societal, cultural, environmental, neurological, visceral, and structural. Walking has the power to dismantle ‘the brittle social structures in which individuals clothe themselves’ and allows us to sense our bodies and the space around us. As three women working across Creative Arts and Business disciplines, we look to unpack ways in which walking, sharing and a shifting of space and place can impact our experiences of knowing and being in the professional world. 

Embodied Walking with Marloes ten Bhömer, Kingston University

This workshop session will focus on representations of women walking in cinema and its effect on film audiences, thinking about how movement mimicry by cinema audiences might inform their movement preferences and biases off screen. Further, we’ll think about whether these mechanisms might play a role in informing ideas about women’s actions and identities off screen. This embodied walking workshop will show a series of short film clips inviting attendees to engage with action movement experiments. 

Please note these mini-workshops have been curated to run as one single session and each will taking place immediately after the previous . It is not possible to book for one only.
