Engaged Walking workshop
An engaged walking workshop -- a method exploring the 'choreography' of walk and the senses involved when exploring a city -- will be held July 31 at the Lielie kapi cemetery in Rīga.
The event description states: During the event series PILSĒTAS MAŅAS artists Edd Schouten, Reinis Lodziņš and Ernests Vilsons will be working individually, thematizing the experience of being in the city and exploring the city while looking for the alternative ways of doing that. In their works they will present different approaches to the same material – which is Riga’s urban space with all its layers, its complexity and its uniqueness. Riga isn’t small. There’s a lot to feel. Let’s go for a walk?
The workshop is held in English. Participation is free. Sign up here.
