It’s that time again! The clocks are about to change, which means the sunrise walks of British Summer Time are almost upon us. Replace your morning scroll with a morning stroll.
British Summer Time is a series of short sunrise walks in consideration of the time change. Over nine seasons, walkers from across Europe and the Americas have joined me to explore the dawn. 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.
For Season 10, we will walk more days than ever! Starting the first full day of British Summer Time in the United Kingdom and continuing until the United States switches to Daylight Savings Time, I will walk from 15 minutes before sunrise until 15 minutes after. You are invited to join me from anywhere in the world.
Dates: 10 March - 31 March 2024
Time: From 15 minutes before sunrise until fifteen minutes after.
Location: Wherever you happen to be.
Share: I take a picture at the beginning, middle and end of my walk, but you can feel free to document it any way you please. You can email your results to firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or share them on social media using #WalkBST #WalkingArtistsNetwork
