Alternative Walking Tours is seeking artists to be involved in a festival-like creation for 2017. Alternative Walking Tours will operate as a curatorial platform for artistic urban tours and urban practices.
We are inviting local and international city inhabitants to apply different methodologies of play and research into the medium of walking. Appropriating spaces, conversations and times to create discourse around viewpoints, urban planning, art, and the everyday experience of city life.
Alternative Walking Tours has been operating since 2013 and presents regular walking tours with students, professionals, urbanists, artists and other experts in the field of Australian bohemianism and subculture. We are in constant discussion in-house around our own viewpoints that form the landscape for what we do and the framework that we work within. 'All Angles' is a continuation of this conversation; bringing the private monologue public. Playing with the tension, challenges and new material that this creates as we test how elastic our city and our work is, from all angles.
If you would like to join this investigation, we are welcoming proposals for walks.
We invite story tellers, students, artists, neighbours, amateurs, cooks, philosophers, athletes, writers, groups, individuals, concepts, material, music, performance, theatre, exercise, professional organisations, designers, urban planners, programmers, and other walking tour providers.
