IGB Autumn Art Walk
October 31, 2020
11:00 am - 11:00 am
This Art Walk is a synchronised but geographically dispersed group walk punctuated by a series of simple, creative tasks.
Inspired by Stirchley-based walk collective Walkspace and Manchester’s Loiterers Resistance Movement we are coordinating a creative walk on Saturday the 31st of October from 11am – midday.
The great thing is that you can, if you wish, meet up with some local friends (from IGB or just your neighbourhood) in a socially-distanced way OR alternatively you can be a part of this walk just by yourself.
All you need for this creative walk is a smartphone (if you’re in a group you only need one smartphone) and to join the IGB Unorthodox Walks Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/3514205868638924
The walk will begin at 11am on Oct 31st. You choose your starting point. Creative instructions will be posted up in our Facebook group at ten-minute intervals. This will result in a roughly 60-minute synchronised but geographically dispersed group walk.
You are encouraged (but not required) to share your creative discoveries (via photos and sound recordings) in the IGB Unorthodox Walks Facebook group after the walk is completed. All the findings will be brought together into a digital art piece.
Taking part in a walk like this means you can slow down and notice features of your local environment you might have otherwise missed or taken for granted. In fact, you might find yourself heading home afterwards, as our friend Andy Howlett says “with heightened senses and a renewed alertness to the fantastical eruptions of the familiar.”
