04 June, 11 June, 18 JuneEdinburgh & The Lothians Discussion Walk
A series of conversations in parks, reconsidering their relationship to the city through walking their boundaries and gates – their marches.
04 June, 11 June, 18 June
Additional Location InfoBy its nature, this event is not universally accessible and this is something the walks will explore, at times informed, guided, and led by whoever comes. Some certainties are that we’ll be a small group of likely strangers talking in English, walking up to 1.5 miles over 45 minutes, over a mostly flat terrain of tarmac, dirt, and grass. If there is anything you wish to discuss about your access to the event before coming, please do so, and we can design the walk together with these in mind.
Can we find a more honest and interesting relationship to the city in our parks than just retreat and escape?
Every Friday we take a lunchtime break and go for a walk in a nearby park around its edges, exploring how it withdraws from or reaches out to meet the rest of the city.
4th June: Pilrig Park
11th June: Lochend Park
18th June: Dalmeny Street Park
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place on your chosen walk. Attendance is limited to 5 participants per walk on a first-come-first-served basis.
