Join Walking with The Waste Land on “A Treasure Trail”
On March 24th
Starts 2pm at The Turner Contemporary
Ends 3.30 pm at a mystery destination in Margate Old Town
We will take you on a walk from the gallery and into the surrounding town. We have devised a set of clues and performative actions that engage with place. These will make connections with lines from the poem that allow us to share our stories from three years of walking with The Waste Land.
Our first Clue:
“He found distant rhymes
fusing disparate things through listening twice.”
( Thorreau: Walking, Cole Swensen)
Join us to discover the magic of Margate through TS Eliot’s seminal poem. Meet at Turner Contemporay’s exhibition Journeys with The Waste Land and be prepared to make your own discoveries through our guided Treasure Trail .
Although this event is free it is ticketed on eventbrite as we have a limit on numbers: <a href="http://A Teasure Trail<“>A Treasure Trail
Billie (Elspeth) Penfold who organises Walking with The Waste Land, is an artists who uses walking as a research tool. She uses poetry and wider readings to connect with sites and events. Participants who collaborate in the walks are encouraged to record their experience through a menemonic system of knots in ropes.
