2012-03-09 | Slow Marathon by Mihret Kebede and "Walk Sans Frontières" Symposium

Mihret Kebede We would like to bring to your attention the symposium "Walk Sans Frontières" that accompanies the Slow Marathon by Mihret Kebede.

Walk Sans Frontières
Symposium on art, walking and boundaries
18 March 2012, 11am. Empty Shop, Bogie Steet corner New Road, Huntly.

The discussion Walk Sans Frontières accompanies the Slow Marathon by Mihret Kebede. The debate will focus on the right to mobility and access. Kebede’s work prompts reflection on the contradiction between appeals to slow travel in the face of climate crisis and the reality that many face: a world of closed borders and visa restrictions. Not all are free to walk where they want or when they want. What frontiers do each of us face when we walk? How have or might they be overcome? How can walking shift or erase borders – whether physical, psychological, economic or geographical? Where can walking take us?

You can still sign up for the Slow Marathon! 17 March 2012
