WALKING, WE ASK QUESTIONS (PART 2)
Walking, We Ask Questions (Part 2) is an extension Walking, We Ask Questions, a 7 hour walk investigating the relationship between the public and private space through interventions and experiments in social choreography. As part of a new research project looking at the use of the body in protest, artist Sorcha Kenny invites you to actively consider the role of the pedestrian in shaping the city.
Join us for an afternoon of debate and discussion. Led by a specialist panel, we’ll be examining walking in art, the use of the body in protest and the impact of the ‘pedestrian’ in shaping the city.
