The Walking Reading Group on Participation

The Walking Reading Group on Participation offers a chance to discuss issues surrounding participation, engagement, collaboration and social practice whilst walking through the streets of London.

For each session texts are set in advance and form the backbone of the exchange. We depart from a venue and walk for up to two hours, swapping conversation partners and discussion themes several times. Apart from the texts, personal experiences, projects related to the area and the route through the city will inform the conversations. We strongly encourage you commit to more than one walk if possible.
