Deirdre Heddon – walking 5 years from now

Play

Professor Deirdre Heddon, from the University of Glasgow, lectures on Contemporary Performance and researches performance in walking and forests. Last year, with Misha Myers, a fellow academic and performance artist in Cornwall, she conceived the Walking Library, which draws on their shared interest in the relationship between reading, walking and writing.

Reflecting on the growth in numbers and popularity of walking festivals, Dee Heddon is optimistic in her 5 year walking forecast believing that as walking costs so little to undertake, with today’s austerity and increasing worries about personal health and climate change, that its popularity will continue to grow.  4’32” 2.1MB
