In this episode, we hear from Deirdre Heddon who teaches theatre studies at the University of Glasgow, and who has a particular research interest in making the work of women walking artists more visible. The interview was recorded en route during a break in ‘The Walking Library’, a performance piece conceived by Dee and Misha Myers for the Sideways 2012 Walking and Art Festival. With the help of a troupe of volunteer walking librarians the Library of more than 90 books, was walked 375km across Belgium. In the interview we also discuss how Dee celebrated her 40th birthday by undertaking 40 walks with family, friends and colleagues. 18’54” 8.9MB
