Following in the footsteps of the cultural tradition of walking (and upping the speed) a group of us (Dr Carali McCall, Annie Grove-White and myself) are keen to put together an anthology exploring running in a cultural context. While we are using the frameworks for the RUN! RUN! RUN! Biennale 2016 #r3fest that we co-curated to guide us, we would be keen to hear your suggestions for other approaches and themes. Please see details below and feel free to pass this call around. And if you are keen to find out more about the Biennale please click on the links at the bottom of this email.
Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes (and in solidarity with what Mytho/Phil is planning regarding Trump's visit),
