Socially Engaged Design Conference

5 October 2019 | Cyprus

Socially Engaged Design Conference was organised on October 5-6, 2019 by the Cyprus University of Technology in Limassol, Cyprus. The two-day event discussed how researchers and practitioners propose and implement solutions to tackle contemporary societal issues. The papers and workshops in the conference programme explore the role of art and design in driving social change. Under the umbrella theme of socially engaged practices through arts and design, the speakers present and debate their stance on political theories, democracy, the actual impact of socially engaged practices, social cities and co-design.

Shared Walks was invited to make a workshop within the Socially Engaged Design Conference, that promoted knowledge exchange and networking on an international and multidisciplinary level. During the 3-hour workshop, we have enjoyed the exchange and appreciated the engagement and outcomes prepared by the participants. Shared Walks online participatory map was enriched by the input created in Cyprus, proposing new insights into the ideas, challenges and strategies of socially engaged design research and practice in various site-specific contexts.

3rd Juli 2019 | Prespes, Greece

The International Encounters / Conference “WALKING PRACTICES / WALKING ART / WALKING BODIES” has been organised by the Department of Fine and Applied Arts of the University of Western Macedonia in Greece. The place of the conference, Prespes area in Greece, is a unique environment with two lakes –Megali Prespa and Mikri Prespa– and is the locus where the field research of the walking art project ‘Visual March to Prespes’ takes place. This walking art project was initiated in 2007 by the 1st Painting Workshop of the School of Visual Arts of the University of Western Macedonia and the current International Encounters / Conference is a culmination of its activities.

Shared Walks was organised on July 3, 2019, as part of the International Encounters Programme that presented more than 30 workshops and walkshops by walking artists from all over the world. Participants of Shared Walks discovered the area from different perspectives by sharing a walk with someone they do not know. Pairs selected a different way of walking randomly from the card set and walked for an approximate duration of one hour. They walked hand in hand, looked for places of power, searched for open doors to enter and collected traces of culture from walls in the town. The outcomes prepared by walking partners are presented on the online map in Prespes region in Greece.

How Discoverers Discover

by Gerhard Lang

7 Mai 2019 | Vienna

In this performative talk, the artist gives an insight into the field of study of strollology or promenadology, founded by the sociologist, economist and philosopher Lucius Burckhardt. Burckhardt adopted the perspective of the stroller in formulating his criticisms of prevailing automobile-centric planning practices and used strolling as a pedagogic approach. The talk describes the context in which strollology took place; including actions, interventions and strolling practice in the society, the art field predating strollology. The final part of the talk focuses on strolling practice and interventions since the field of strollology disappeared from the university curriculum upon Burckhardt‘s retirement

On Bodies and Their Collective Moves

by homepage of Elke Krasny

8 Mai 2019 | Vienna

Along with this walking seminar, Elke Krasny shares historical and contemporary texts related to bodies and their collective moves. Reproductive rights, health rights, labour rights, rights to education, rights to vote, rights to work… Who were those who marched for those rights? How did they organise politically? How did they move collectively? The walking seminar seeks to practice walking, thinking and reading collectively while moving in public space. Such a practice is performative and commemorative. Participants will reflect on what it means to remember past marches and strikes, as they again take place today addressing the contemporary condition of multiple crises.

Walking:Holding

by Rosana Cade

22 Mai 2019 | Vienna

What does your town look like from someone else’s perspective? What’s it like to hold hands with a complete stranger and walk through the city centre? Performance art and mobile technology converge in Walking:Holding, a meditative documentary by Rosana Cade, Claire Nolan and Charlie Cauchi, that journeys through urban landscapes exploring identity and intimacy in public space with a focus on LGBTQ+ experiences. This film is a response to Glasgow based artist Rosana Cade’s award-winning interactive performance, which invites audience members to embark on a carefully designed route through a town whilst holding hands with a series of different local participants. The screening will be followed by an artist talk online.

In their artistic researches, the artists examine the innovative potential of walking in computer games.

Walking Simulator

By Leonhard Müllner and Robin Klengel

28 Mai 2019 | Vienna

The work ‘Operation Jane Walk’ by Robin Klengel and Leonhard Müllner examines the innovative potential of walking in computer games. In this performance, the hostile military environment of a shooter-game is misappropriated for an architectural tour. The gameplay is reduced to walking and instead of a martial action in a city as the backdrop of the game, it becomes the narrative foreground. The Walking Simulator leads into the warlike worlds of computer games and shows ways of desertion from digital war zones. Artists will discuss case studies and test tactics of resisting and refusing to command, especially in the context of walking.

Walking Narratives,
Instant Tools

by Oliver Hangl

28/29 Mai 2019 | Vienna

Oliver Hangl is a performance/media artist and an urban activist. His work marks a consistent confrontation between man and the environment, pushing the boundaries between physical and psychological spaces. In his talk, the artist will present a selection of his urban walks, rides and trails, with a focus on various implementations of narratives. In the workshop, Hangl proposes a short narration, by which participants are challenged to develop a set of ‘translations’ from fiction into an uncontrolled field of action: reality – on streets or public spaces of Vienna. Hence, a variety of methods and approaches will be implemented, followed by a final assessment of the process and outcomes.
