ESRC Festival of Social Science, The Walking Studio—Drawing with Words

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganising a conference, workshop, ...


This is an opportunity for families to come together in the shared pursuit of discovering their locality through the art of walking and creative writing. Prompts for writing about places experienced along the way will be shared. We will also discuss the art of the every day and the extraordinary in the ordinary. This is not a history tour, it is a meander through the streets of the Cathedral Quarter at a slow pace to encourage observation, conversation and response art through writing, photography and recording soundscapes. Each participant will become a walking artist who discovers significance in the world around them.
