Walking Collective Journal
Issue 01 Open Call: “Dispersal”
Our collective is embarking on a year of contemplation and practice addressing the plurality of meanings and experiences of walking in this fraught moment. We invite inspired makers, writers, artists, and thinkers to submit original work to be included in our inaugural issue of the Walking Collective Journal: “Dispersal.” We welcome original artwork across visual and auditory media, and pieces of writing in any form—fiction or nonfiction, poetry or prose—that address themes of walking and dispersal.
Join us! — Email us and introduce yourself to join our group! Please include any university affiliations and your location if you are living outside of New York City.
Due to coronoavirus mitigations, all collective-led, in-person walks and events are currently postponed. Look forward to more digital projects coming soon.
An audio project to bring you a mix of walking-inspired interviews, guides, and soundscapes. Follow the podcast, listen while walking, and participate in our online events to discuss with other collective members!
