British Summer Time (2019-ongoing)


British Summer Time is a series of short sunrise walks in consideration of the time change. Over six seasons, walkers from across Europe and the Americas have joined me to explore the dawn.

Season 7 starts the day before the clocks switch to Greenwich Mean Time in the United Kingdom and continues until they ‘fall back’ in the United States. I will walk from 15 minutes before sunrise until 15 minutes after.

You are invited to join me from anywhere in the world. The process is simple, just go for a walk from fifteen minutes before sunrise until fifteen minutes after, and share your sunrise through email or social media. Join for one walk, all of them, or anywhere in between!

Dates: 29 October - 7 November, 2022

Time: From 15 minutes before sunrise until 15 minutes after.

Location: Wherever you happent to be.

Share: Record your sunrise and share it with me via blakemwalks@gmail.com or through social media using the hashtags #BritishSummerTime #SunriseWalks #WalkingArtistsNetwork.
