Event description

Description

Photographer and artist Mindy Goose, who has a chronic neurological illness, is leading a psychogeographical walk focussing on the challenges faced by people with reduced mobility. The walk will ask pertinent questions at intervals, about accessibility, loneliness, and isolation due to illness, and the extra challenges those with disabilities face. Recording the journey through words and pictures, the participants are encouraged to write, sketch or photograph their journey; which will be drawn together to document the walk, in as yet undefined Psychogeographical exploration.

"[C]ities have a Psychogeographical relief, with constant currents, fixed points and vortexes which strongly discourage entry into or exit from certain zones" Knabb, Ken, ed. (1995). Situationist International Anthology. Berkley: Bureau of Public Secrets

“The study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behaviour of individuals” Guy Debord, 1955

We will be meeting outside the Gatehouse Cafe, Abbey Walk (adjacent to the Abbey House Museum)
