2a. Topics to be discussed
Topics to be covered include (but are not limited to):
- How can walking be used to highlight or intervene in political, personal, social, economic, and ecological issues?
- How does walking expose assumptions regarding ability/disability, mobility and immobility?
- How can we think about the material and sensory aspects of walking—the soles of one’s feet, calluses, footwear, hiking poles, crutches and wheelchairs?
- What sort of a question can walking as an aesthetic practice ask of our contemporary moment—of the pandemic, of migration, of climate change?
- What questions does the ground you walk on raise?
- What sort of questions does walking ask of you as a person? How do you ask questions by walking?
- What questions are activated by walking the territories we inhabit (in terms of negotiating and designing the urban/rural – public/private space)?
- What questions are activated by walking the territories and with the communities of Prespa?
- How can we share a walking experience in real time with others who live elsewhere in the world through walking hubs?
