We would like to bring to your attention the project Slow Marathon by Mihret Kebede.
The artist now in Scotland invited by Deveron Arts for her project "Slow Marathon" will be at the Thami Mnyele Foundation from the 20 till the 26 March 2012.
Ethiopian artist Mihret Kebede would have liked to walk the 5850 miles from her home in Addis Ababa to our town of Huntly, Aberdeenshire. However the physical difficulties of navigating through the deserts, let alone the closed borders and visa restrictions make such a feat dangerous, if not impossible. In order to accumulate the 5850 miles from Addis to Huntly Mihret needs a total of 225 people to walk a marathon of 26 miles.
Are you up for a challenge? You can walk alone or share the walk with a friend, just remember there is no winner or loser in the first ever Slow Marathon.
