My all time favourite walking (art) book is Walkscapes by Francesco Careri. I keep going back to it. Inspiring!

>> Like Mr Kipling, Mr Stanley makes exceedingly good confectionery, and his walking sticks are a favourite of ours. Even if you haven’t got a box of these minty delights close to hand, we have got something for you to curl up to listen to and dream about the Spring and sunshine soon to come.
>> 
>> Bibi Calderaro is a "forest therapy" expert who leads people on sensory walks along woodland trails in north eastern USA, and Andrew Stuck had the privilege of chatting to her over the Internet and recording our latest Talking Walking episode.  Like us, you are probablywondering what a forest therapist actually does, and there appears to be a lot more to it than just a walk in the woods. Bibi is also a walking artist and has been an artist-in-residence for the US National Park Service, which sounds like an absolute gem of an experience. She is somewhat shy (see photo) Have a listen to Bibi talking walking
>> 
>> It’s Talking Walking’s tenth anniversary and we’ve had the pleasure of delving through the archive and getting in touch with all the fabulous people we’ve interviewed - who share a passion for walking.  Hamish Fultonhas provided some new artwork for his Talking Walking page, that tells you what he’s been up to since our conversation took place. Have a listen again toHamish talking walking
>> 
>> Like many events this week, we have had to postpone Tom Bolton’s walkshop in which he will be revealing the Lost Rivers of Camden but the great news is that on its new date more of it will be in daylight - why not join him on Book for Wednesday 28 March
>> 
>> Our Urban Forest Explorations with Paul Wood stride into Spring, with our first visit to a west London neighbourhood on Sunday 18 March.  Starting at Turnham Green tube station we will be making our way through Chiswick on a circular route, joined by campaigners from the London National Park City andAbundance London.  Book now
>> 
>> The following week, we are celebrating 'Hanami' - the coming of the Spring cherry blossom, which is celebrated in Japan and increasingly in other parts of the world too. Come and join us as we explore first Herne Hill on Sunday 25 March and then Crouch End on Sunday 8th April We have linked up with theInternational Cherry Blossom Festival in Vancouver, who have sent us this amazing photo by Clarence Chan.

> Walking Art / Walking Aesthetics: Call for papers and art projects | INTERARTIVE
> Deadline: 31st May 2018
> Guest editors:
> 
> Yannis Ziogas, Associate professor, Department of Visual and Applied Arts, University of Western Macedonia, Greece, [log in to unmask]
> 
> Stella Sylaiou, Adjunct lecturer, Department of Visual and Applied Arts, University of Western Macedonia/ Hellenic Open University, Greece, [log in to unmask]

> Co-editing with:
> 
> Herman Bashiron Mendolicchio, Lecturer, University of Barcelona; Faculty member and core advisor, Transart Institute; InterArtive, [log in to unmask]
> 
> The special issue of the Online Magazine InterArtive will be dedicated to Walking Art. We invite theorists, critics, curators and artists who work on the subject to participate.
> 
> This Call for Papers and Artistic Projects intends to record the history and the potential of walking as an art practice. The procedure of walk has been developed as an art practice from the beginning of Modernism. Since the '60s however it has become an established form of art expression. In contemporary art the walking practice is one of the main venues of exploring the cultural environment. As a consequence of that, there has been created a Walking Culture that is defined by a new realm of Aesthetics, related to the interaction of the Body to Landscape (and vice versa). The Walking Aesthetics are defined from the update of the concepts of Empiricism; the artist, or the cultural nomad, is interpreting the Landscape as an open field where s/he obtains experiences and, through them s/he develops ideas, concepts and her/his artwork. A particular set of emotions are created during the experience of walking in the landscape that shapes a characteristic venue of art expression, close to the concepts of Psychogeography.
> 
> The papers should examine the various aspects of walking as a contemporary methodology of expression and understanding of the social environment and the landscape (urban and rural) where human activity is realised. The papers could also examine the future of walking practice and its potential (in art, aesthetics and in its applications in pedagogy).
> 
> This special issue aims to address this important topic, by focusing on the realization of the walking approach as art practice, its theoretical background and the historical approaches of walking.  
> 
> We accept proposals that consider one or several of the following subjects, among others:
> 
> Walking as an autonomous art form
> Psychogeography and contemporary art
> Walking as a practice since the ‘60s: Land Art, Ephemeral Art, Sustainable Art
> The Aesthetics of walking/ Walking as an artistic practice
> The Environmental dimension of Walking Art
> Walking Art and Ethnography
> Walking Art and Narrative
> Walking Art and Learning
> Walking Art and Sustainability
> Walking as a solitary and/or as a collaborative practice
> Walking and Performance Art
> Walking Art and collective memory
> Walking and activism
> The pedagogical dimensions of Walking Art
> Walking Art in the digital era
> Walking Art and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
> Walking Art and Locative Media
> 
> Texts should be around 800 to 3000 words: PUBLISHNG GUIDELINES Texts
> 
> The works and art projects will be published in the form of Online Exhibition (images and short text): PUBLISHING GUIDELINES Artworks
> 
> Proposals (full papers and art projects) should be submitted up until May 31, 2018, by mail at: [log in to unmask]
