Since COVID struck, walking has been incredibly important, especially to get off of our digital screens and out of our zoom boxes. We need to feel our body not mediated through technology, reminding ourselves where we are, the bodies we're in, and the moment we have right now.
Join multidisciplinary artist, TEDx Speaker, PTSD Specialist, nature-lover and teaching artist Amy Oestreicher, for a series of six online workshops to claim your own walking practice for connection, discovery, resilience, and play.
Six Prompts will be posted online and in the Facebook group www.facebook.com/groups/walk2discover every Friday starting on August 14th. Six optional, participatory zoom workshops will be held on Sundays at 4pm starting August 23rd.
Walking as practice. Walking as performance. Walking as art, as meditation, as pilgrimage, or simply as a means to get from one place to another. Walks guided by intuition, by boredom, by maps, by sound, touch, smell, or simply by chance. During the time of the pandemic, many have found solace in regular neighborhood walks.
This workshop will explore the many strategies by which artists have conceptualized the art of walking. During the first session we will share exercises, experiences, artistic examples, and resources.
"We all know that walking is good for your health, but why is it a vital tool for finding ourselves and connection? Can we feel less alone, even as we walk a path on our own?
In this series, I'll introduce you to fun, creative prompts, using your "superhero five senses" to experience walking as your go-to guide and never-ending source of joy, play, resilience, and discovery. You'll experience the world like you never had before and find that the biggest gifts are right under our noses - and feet."
