Walknow: walking out 1     Sunday 4 October 10.00

Meet: 10.00 am Outside 44AD Gallery and Artists Studios

4 Abbey Street Bath BA1 1NN

(the corner of Abbey near where the Centurion used to stand)

Time: approx 2 hours..ish

Walk: a slow performative walk following a route published by the National Trust: Walk to the View: mostly surfaced paths with a short stretch on well marked grass paths. Mud possible after wet weather. One moderately steep hill, affording fine views of Bath from its slopes

but we may of course drift off …

Enchantments/disenchantment: as well as enjoying the fine views and beautiful old buildings I want to bring some questions to the walk that I hope will reveal and maybe even create further layers to this experience. I hope you will bring something to.

This is an experiment not a guided walk! We will co-create the experience and share something of it online. If you have a smart phone please bring it and use it, if you have thoughts/memories/stories to share please do, if you want to draw, photograph or sound record bring your stuff. That’s the performative element to share our walk online live to create an ephemeral social networked presence and see what happens……

I would prefer it if there were no dogs!
