Come Rain or Shine 

“I did the first of a series of walks with people that will happen over the next two years today. It was quite gorgeous, light and yet in depth. If you‘re interested in joining a walk, read on.

A different kind of wealth

– IN THESE STONES HORIZONS SING

Wales Millenium Centre, Cardiff Bay.

11am on Wednesday 25th August, 2021

How long will it be?

One hour

Who’s invited?

This walk invites anyone who is interested.

Does it cost anything? 

No

Why do I walk?

I walk when I meet someone new

when I get stuck

to clear my head and get real

to see nature

to get a sense of where I live

to get a feel for the big picture

to hear more and maybe learn a thing or two

to take the long route and hang out in the unsolved

to throw about a social issue

to take up space and imagine it all belongs to everyone.

to cultivate trust

for pleasure and ecstatic [well] – being

for exercise

to be with people

to spark a new friendship

to turn over a confusing, frustrating, infuriating mess

to see if we can unblock something

to protest

to calm down

to join stuff up

to have an epiphany or three

Or simply, to put one foot in front of the other

My name is Jo Fong. I am an artist and newly appointed Creative Associate at WMC.

I will be walking at 11am every last Wednesday of every month from June 2021. These walks have no expectations and there is no evaluation form at the end. I don’t mind if there are 2 people, 20 or 200, there is much to gain, yet with little effort.

Please do share.

AND so you know, there is no need to book a place, just pop it in your diary and turn up. If you have particular access needs you’d like to be known please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Regarding COVID. We will be outdoors the whole time and we want everyone to feel comfortable and be safe. Please keep this in mind.

Look after yourselves and the people around you.

“Walking makes you say stuff. New people and new encounters generate new ideas, new stuff being put into the atmosphere. Be a part of this creative locomotion by just coming to walk. Change takes time.” -Audience response.

 

A physical and verbal negotiation of presence somewhere between the psycho-physical and the facilitated.“ Audience description.
