Event and book launch:

Wednesday 15 March 2017, 6.30–8.30pm Free, no booking required

The launch of Walking Cities: London, edited by Jaspar Joseph-Lester, Simon King, Amy Blier-Carruthers and Roberto Bottazzi, and published by Camberwell Press. Through bringing together a new interdisciplinary field of artists, writers, architects, musicians, human geographers and philosophers Walking Cities: London considers how urban walking informs and triggers new processes of making, thinking, researching and communicating. In particular, the book examines how the city contains narratives, knowledge and contested materialities that are best accessed through the act of walking. Ultimately, Walking Cities: London seeks to understand the wider significance of changing geographies to generate critical questions and creative perspectives for navigating the social and political impact of rapid urban change.

The launch features contributions from four of the contributors to the book: Sean Ashton, Douglas Murphy, Rosana Antoli and Peter Sheppard Skærved.
