Women across the arts have long used walking in their creative practice, yet their invisibility in the canon is conspicuous. This series of events takes a step towards redressing that imbalance through walking artworks, film screenings, talks and discussions - that celebrate and raise the profile of WALKING WOMEN.
WALKING WOMEN is curated by the artists and writers Amy Sharrocks and Clare Qualmann in collaboration with Dee Heddon.It is presented in partnership with Somerset House, The Live Art Development Agency, The Walking Artists Network, The University of East London, Deveron Arts, Forest Fringe and Geography Workshop.
Amy Sharrocks is a live artist, sculptor and film-maker who invites people to come on journeys in which their own experience, communication and expression are a vital part. Clare Qualmann is an artist/researcher with an interdisciplinary performance oriented practice. Her work uses walking as method, process and outcome.
