Alternative Guide for Walking
Publication Launch

Wednesday 26th February

A publication documenting a walk between Arrochar and Inveruglas. Whilst on this walk, the practitioners are exercising a new way of walking and experiencing the outdoors. The work is photographic and written, produced both independently and collaboratively. Landscape has often been seen as a place for conquer, dominance and physical strength, this publication challenges these ideals, reverting the stereotypes and using walking and landscape as a safe space for conversation and free making. Veering away from the path is not just advised but encouraged.

Jess Hay, Sofie Keller, Rosie Trevill and Silke Zapp are four visual practitioners in collaboration, focusing on the outdoors as a space to discuss identity politics, and community-based making.

Copies of the publication will be on sale, £5 is suggested, but no-one refused a sale due to lack of funds. All profit made from the publication sales will be put towards the next walk, where people will be invited to join the collective on their excursion.

Prints from the publication will also be available for purchase.
