“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognise, accept and celebrate those differences.” – Audre Lorde
“Walking:Holding gently encourages people to abandon fear and trust the hands of strangers. What emerges is often uplifting and empowering.” – Rosana Cade
What does your town look like from someone else’s perspective? How intimate can you be with someone you’ve just met? Walking:Holding invites you to walk hand in hand with a series of very different local strangers around nearby streets, parks and alleyways. It is a participatory performance for one audience member at a time, offering a gentle meditation on identity, touch and intimacy in urban public space.
