Talk: 6.00pm – 7.00pm

Walking is more than pedestrian.  It can be a political and/or artistic act.  Travel through time and space to encounter heroes, villains, revolutionaries, artists, poets, philosophers, situationists, monsters and mystics.

Join a discussion on how the city has been shaped by transport and why Mancunians have fought for the right to wander our city.  There will be a particular focus on psychogeographers who use creative walking methods to explore hidden power structures, secret histories and how the environment makes us feel.

Before the talk there is a chance to explore the Loitering With Intent exhibition with one of the curators.  You will also get exclusive access to zines, maps and artists’ books which add to the story.
