Nine Walking Words panels have been commissioned by Muse Development as part of the redevelopment of Chatham Place. The installation of this new public art commission is being celebrated through a programme of nine events during 2016 as part of Reading’s Year of Culture. These events – involving local artists, arts organisations and art practices – are themed around the stories told on the panels.
Working with arts organisations, performers, artists, musicians, writers, poets and a baker the sequence of events will take you on a journey across the town centre and beyond revealing Reading’s historical past whilst working with it’s creative future. From specially commissioned music to night time walks to secret places, from baked biscuits to Reading’s dark secrets, a boat, a cannon and a European footpath, come and join us on the journey.
