Walking Artist

The point is not to simply think, talk, read or write about walking, but rather to go on a walk. Skip the biography and walk straight out the door. Look below for walking exercises and instructions on how to create a memory palace. Better to be out walking.

15 November, 2017 - 1-2pm
‘Walking Libraries: A Point of Global Exchange’
International Centre for Public Pedagogies
University of East London, Stratford Campus
Cass School of Education and Communities ED.2.04 (Stratford)
A presentation of my recent paper ‘The Walking Library: Relating the Landscape’, which focuses on The Walking Library (2012-Ongoing), a walking art project by Deirdre Heddon and Misha Myers that brings libraries into the landscape. I argue this work uses the resolutely local act of walking to foster a global sense of place and provide participants with opportunities to reimagine the landscape.
