25-08-2017 Walk

Psychogeography in the Park

Two guided walks with primary school children around Glasgow’s Queen’s Park. This event was part of Glasgow’s Unity Festival.

Programme for the festival Friday

The walks were a chance to encourage children from local schools to really look hard at the park as they walked around, and travel back in time to a Victorian designed park landscape, an eighteenth century farm and back as far – maybe – as the Iron Age at the Camphill enclosure in the centre of the park.

In Camphill low res

In the end, c60 children attended and most got soaked in the incessant rain, but I think they enjoyed time travelling and learning about urban prehistory and psychogeography with Mr Kenny.

Associated outputs: Psychogeography in the Park blog post

Audience: c70 (including teachers)
