Artist: Mihret Kebede

Project: Slow Marathon

Texts and images about the first edition of the Slow Marathon (17th march 2012).

The Slow Marathon took place with artist Mihret Kebede who invited people to help her walk 11700 miles from Addis to Huntly and back. Participants were encouraged to walk a marathon of 26 miles with the artist however those who couldn't walk the whole distance were able to donate miles through different activities. The ultimate aim of the project was to connect people from different worlds and to make use of each other's potential and resources for their common good.
