'WALKSY.' WALKING APP LAUNCH | ROSY NAYLOR
SUN 30 MAY, 11am-1pm
Join Art Walk's founder, Rosy Naylor, with a walk around Portobello's changing urban environment whilst introducing the new 'Walksy.' App.
'Walksy.' (or Walk & See) offers a creative way to record our outdoors whilst we walk. The App will create a library of walks that documents many of the Art Walk's artist led walks as well as collecting user's own walks of their nearby; documenting the 'moments' we experience when we walk, by uploading images, audio and text.
For the launch, Rosy invites participants to walk with her exploring the edges of Western Portobello's changing landscape, from its past working land to new Baileyfield developments, and areas of current industrial land. Recording some of the moments that mark this transition between the old and the new, the walk will touch the edge of where we can and cannot walk, embracing some of the sounds that mark this period of change.
Walk lasts approx 1.5hrs.
The walk starts from the kilns, Bridge Street, Portobello. Max participants: 15 people. The App will be available for download on 30th May.
The 'Walksy.' App is supported by:
Smarter Choices, Smarter Places (Paths for All)
& The National Lottery Community Fund
