Wednesday After Work
Rethinking Cities is taking to the streets in July with four participatory walks that begin after work on Wednesdays.
Rethinking Cities has a track record of creating highly popular events at which in depth discussion and professional networking thrive: Conversations for Future Lifestyles, the hugely popular Talk the Walks, and Writing Wall Workshops. They are now extending their activities to exploring and discovering London neighbourhoods.
Wednesday After Work Walks are not a traditional led walk, although they may keep to a route, they are an opportunity for participants to shape the itinerary. For each walk you will be given a field notebook for you to keep. The walks will stimulate discussion and the sharing of ideas, and you will be encouraged to record your own interactions with the spaces and places of interest along the route in your field notebooks. There will be opportunities to share knowledge and be collaboratively creative!
For each walk, you do need to register before the walk takes place – follow the links below.
