Dear Walking artists,
Our Slow Marathon, now in its 7th year, is now online ready for booking.
Slow Marathon - co-concepted with Ethiopian artist Mihret Kebede in 2012 - is our annual walking event. Celebrating the human pace, it is both an endurance event as well as a poetic act that brings together friendship, physical activity and an appreciation of our varied landscape.
Slow Marathon 2018 sees a collaborative Slow Marathon between artists May Murad from Gaza and Rachel Ashton from Huntly. Inspired by the botanical collections of pacifist Rosa Luxemburg, the artists are mapping out their routes by drawing inspiration from the wild plants they find in their respective places. Through the Walking Without Walls partnership Rachel and May will be discovering how we can collaborate artistically and socially despite restrictive political situations.
The 42k walk can be done in your own time through the wonderful and varied Moray and Aberdeenshire countrysides.
Early Bird prices are £25 for the whole weekend.
