Walking a Line: Encounters Through Drawing


A collective recording and mapping of the surface of the ground

through walking and drawing. 

Pausing to listen to the ground, 

connect to the past, present and future, 

cross boundaries and borders 

and notice what is often overlooked.

* Update: July 2021

As I’m unable to travel to Prespa in person, am looking forward to walking together online as part of an international virtual community. In 2017 I took part in Made of Walking, La Romieu, France and had a great time creatively walking with artists from around the world, so am looking forward to the creative wanderings and talks at Prespa. 

Walking a Line: Encounters Through Drawing, my drawing activity for Prespa, extends the project that I launched at Made of Walking, and links to my Groundlines journeys too.

Walking as a Question

What questions does walking pose? What questions can walking be used to explore? Who walks? Who chooses to walk? Who is forced to walk? Who can walk? Who cannot?

Thirty local walks and walkshops, twenty hybrid walkshops and fifteen audio walks (in Prespa and remote), twenty online events (walkshops, talks and panels) take place together with an exhibition and a three day conference in the village of Lemos at the Prespa Lake at the border of Greece, North Macedonia and Albania. The walks in Prespa intersect with walks of ten hubs in three continents, bringing walking together to a global level. This stands for a collective and collaborative celebration with more then a hundred walks around the planet in just ten days.

In raising walking as a question in itself, we invite critical and artistic engagement with the limits and possibilities of this most everyday of modalities.

Walking as a Question brings artists and researchers together,from more than 25 countries, joined in walking and discussing about questions of walking in a pandemic and post-pandemic perspective.

All events are for free and open for everyone with an interest in walking as an art.  Free booking here.

Organized by the Department of Fine and Applied Arts, School of Fine Arts, University of Western Macedonia, Greece in collaboration with Made of Walking (VIII) / the Milena principle and Walk Listen Create.
