Join artist Ania Bas to explore practices of walking and writing.
 
Whilst (mostly) walking we will be listening, talking, reading and writing in order to explore the human need to walk and the urge to write. No previous experience of writing or walking is necessary.   
 
Bring a pen and paper with you. Please wear sensible footwear and bring an umbrella just in case.
 
Please meet Ania at Arnolfini Box Office to join the walk.  
 
Walk & Talk
 
Walk & Talk is a series of lectures and workshops presented informally whilst walking around Bristol. These guided tours are specially developed and led by invited artists and academics with an interest in walking, who will consider the site specific features of the city as part of their discussion. The Walk & Talk series is part of the public programme of events presented alongside Richard Long’s major new solo exhibition at Arnolfini, TIME AND SPACE, 30 July to 15 November 2015.
 
Ania Bas is an artist who creates situations that support dialogue and exchange, her work testing and exploring frameworks of participation. Bas is interested in the ways that narratives shape understanding, mythology and knowledge of places and people. Her works take forms of text, events, walks, performances, useful object and publications. Bas is co-founder of The Walking Reading Group and was an Open School East associate (2013-2014).
