An invitation to walk out on enchantment

A year of walking out on enchantment

An open invitation to join a walk on foot, online or both.

I propose a monthly walk exploring enchantment, heritage and the body. A series of critical walks exploring ‘hidden’ heritage, walks to work, walks that were or are work, walks that make connections and resonate on human rights issues.

I am currently experimenting with strategies to resist immersive romantic/arcadian walking practices. So rather than walking to commune with nature and all that involves I am interested in walking out of necessity or coercion, from walks to work to walks at gunpoint, the walks of refugees, the walks of those who have to. I am interested in developing a disenchanted walking practice, aware of enchantments but never totally immersed in them. I am not quite sure what that will be and my intention is to use the coming year to discover that, and I hope you will join me for some or part of that journey on foot or online or both.

My walking practice is digitally connected and this invitation is open to those who may wish to engage online as well as those who would like to physically walk. I am particular keen to walk with those who would like to experiment with social media and social networking in this context. Walkers of all kinds welcome.

  • First Sunday of each month.
  • Walks more or less in Bath, but not always.
  • Sometimes long sometimes short.
  • Open to suggestions.

The first walk will be on Sunday 4 October, to experiment on and with the recently released National Trust walk from the City of Bath to Bathwick fields.
