Through online and offline research the Walking Institute is mapping and exploring artistic and academic discourses that have emerged through the variety of disciplines and enquiry. This research shows the wealth of interest around walking & art and the relationships and convergences between historical and political forms and the development of the walking leisure industry, as well as its role in the environmental discourse. The discovery and innovation within the research will also be mapped and archived as the programme develops. The information is shared online through this website and through a physical library in Huntly that holds a collection of books, articles and references relating to walking & art.
We also organise regular talks, symposiums, annual conferences and other research driven events that promote discussion and exchange on the current discourse.
