The Participatory Walk

The Participatory Walk by Todd Shalom

Join Todd Shalom in this workshop on the participatory walk form. Todd will reveal the underbelly of an Elastic City walk, leading attendees through various ways to read and respond to their surroundings in a co-investigation of the everyday. Various techniques from photography, poetry, movement and sound will be used to shape one’s lens. Additional concerns such as: encouraging participation; forming a compelling narrative and designing a walk route will also be covered. Participants will work in groups to create a participatory walk together. No previous experience necessary.

"The Participatory Walk" holds 12 participants, will held in English but Todd also speaks Spanish.

Please note this way takes place over 5 weekday mornings (Monday, August 25th thru Friday, August 29th) from 10am to 2pm. One should plan to attend all 5 sessions, as they are not offered individually. Please write to with any questions.
