Pilgrimages, Shrines, Walking, Making Labyrinths and Story Telling.

In her talk at the conference  Beyond The Pedestrian: Walking in Research, Theory, Practice and Performance in Liverpool on July 26th Professor Dee Heddon stated that we learn by being in conversation with each other and outside our own comfort zones.

I found this re-assuring as I'm often working on things without really understanding where it's taking me, often involving other people (who I thank for their forbearance as I cannot sometimes explain what I am doing or where it is going)  and then ...hey presto, 

This is what I love about what I do and drives me on.

I'll be at  4WCOP in Huddersfield on September 8th, with Sonia Overall, Treading and Threading the Labyrinth, Walk-threading-and-treading-the-labyrinth

Then, on  to Walking with Shrines at The Margate Bookie on September 29th  .
With artists, creators and makers: Sara Trillo. Virginia Fitch, Diana Lane, Maggy Rodd, Anna Bowman (filming), Simon (Half Day Holidays), Anastasia Miller (photography)

authors :
Jessica Kidd , Mr. Flood's Last Resort
Philip Whitely, Marching on Together
Owen Lowery, Transition Poetry (performance)
Elise Valmorbida, Madonna of The Mountains

 Finally  on to "Friends of Interpretable spaces" at St Augustine's Church, Hackney in October, for some more Labyrinth building with Sonia Overall,

 I am taking a little time to reflect on the domino effect which allows one thing to lead to another. Enjoying the journey.
