Free guided walks and workshops using the Walk With Us app which focusses on the National Oceanography Centre’s monitoring project about coastal hazards, resilience, seawalls, and the wider issues of coastal erosion and climate change.
The Walk With Us app (which you can download at home beforehand or at Newlyn Art Gallery), narrates the story of Six Lessons in Tightrope Walking combining poetic audio and augmented reality. On these guided walks participants are invited to discuss the issues raised about the coastline and to create their own artworks in response to the location.
All welcome, and all art materials provided.
THINGS YOU WILL NEED
- Comfortable and weather-appropriate clothing and footwear
- An Android or iOS smartphone and headphones
- The Walk With Us app (available free at https://walkwithus.uk)
Meet at 13.00 at Newlyn Art Gallery reception.
Each walk takes around 45 minutes and covers approximately one mile.
Participants will get together at the end of the walk at Jubilee Pool for coffee and cake, and to talk about the walk and their responses.
Walks will take place each day, weather depending.
