Now that we are able to meet in person again, we have taken our exploration back to the streets. We are ‘travellers on the urban margins’ inspired by the drifts of the Situationists, we wander along our regular routes, trying to put aside our preconceptions to combine what we do and don’t know.
The core members of the walking group have put forward suggestions for us to workshop in this next testing phase of the project. Using sensory approaches, such as being guided by smell, spotting small natural wonders and musings on bus rides … at this stage we are being open and inquisitive – we have until the end of June to finalise the ideas to be presented to the public in live / printed and digital formats.
It feels good to build slowly, to consider what is important, what is needed and what we can offer.
We are also beginning to open out, invite more people in to take part – including a ART WALK CLUB for all. Regular sessions will begin in the next few weeks, if you are local to Leigh and would like to join in, please email: [email protected]
