Marsha Bradfield, PhD. joined us for some thinking around boarders, migration and the state of being unsettled in November 2018.

Blake Morris, Ph.D, specialises in walking as an artistic medium outside of performance, read more about his practice here. He stayed with us in April 2018 when he gave a talk about Walking, Activism and Politics.

Katerina Talianni is a Ph.D candidate in Music at Edinburgh College of Art. Her research, entitled Walking-with-sound: sound, space and movement, explores soundmaps and their impact on audiences’ engagement through walking and listening. She was with us in May 2017 when she undertook a  number of sound walks with us, while taking new recordings. Listen to her situation composition work here.

Matluba Khan, Ph.D, joined Deveron Projects to focus on children’s perception of aesthetics - 'their preferences, likes and dislikes - both in relation to their school landscape and neighbourhood open spaces'. She was with us in spring 2016 when among other things, she did an afternoon session with us, thinking about our own Brander garden. Follow her blog here.

Dee Heddon is a Professor of Contemporary Performance at the University of Glasgow. She is the author of Autobiography and Performance and co-author of Devising Performance. In Huntly she was working on her book around disability and walking. Hear Dee discuss her work here.
