Art Explorations on line - Kings Cross to Regent's Place - led by Gail Astbury & Tim Ingram-Smith

6pm-7pm Wednesday 22 April on Zoom. Read more and book your place
 

London Art Explorations are a series of walks investigating artworks displayed in outdoor settings in London, created and led by  Tim Ingram-Smith and Gail Astbury, public art enthusiasts as well as practitioners in their own right.

We’ve adapted to the times and are thrilled to be offering a guided public art tour for all to enjoy from home. The tour will be held on Zoom using Google Streetview, and will be recorded too. It will take approximately 60 minutes, and there will be a chance to ask questions during the tour.

Join them on a dense virtual walking tour of art pieces scattered on either side of the Euston and Marylebone Roads in central London.  Discover works by Henry Moore, Antony Gormley, Eduardo Paolozzi, Gary Hume, Tracey Emin and others all on public display.  Discretionary ticketing.

walk · listen · café, is a bi-weekly (once every two weeks) online meeting for creatives in the fields of walking and art. Every ‘café’ lasts between 1 and 2 hours, is headed by an expert introducing a particular topic, and followed by an open discussion on the topic at hand.

Online meetings are hosted through 
Jitsi. Participants will be sent the conference link shortly before the event kicks off. To cover expenses and provide a small gift for the expert, participation costs 3 euros.

 

I often walk for pleasure, to find a peace of mind, a pace that gets my rhythm back in order. But I also like to walk for a purpose. Those purposes are often self-imposed, related to an interest of either political or personal nature. 

When I walked the 1800km home to my mother in Bavaria from my home in Scotland, I sometimes called this walk a pilgrimage. It was something that I had to do at that time. But many people criticized or at least questioned this. So, I am now in doubt, when a long-walk is a pilgrimage, and when it is a long-distance walk? I would like to find clarification on this question, so I can keep walking without thinking about this.

Walking for 5 months and covering 2,000 miles across Europe from London to Jerusalem, the Just Walk marked the centenary of the Balfour Declaration in which the British Government announced their support for a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine. In this Talking Walking episode Andrew Stuck catches up with Justin Butcher, who conceived and led it, who describes the Just Walk as a ‘pilgrimage of penance’ and a ‘march of solidarity’.
