Unplanned wandering with Francesco Careri
in Footscray during Melbourne Design Week 2020
With things going the way they have, we made the decision to postpone the symposium and rethink the talk with Francesco Careri. The talk was planned to take place at the National Gallery of Victoria. Instead, we recorded it at our studio so that it can be watched at home. In this lecture, Francesco talks about his practice of collective walking and its capacity to shape spaces, create meaning and form connections between people.
For more on Francesco’s practice, listen to this walking interview he did with Jonathan Green for ABC Radio National’s Blueprint program while he was here.
And to soundtrack your next lockdown-appropriate perambulations, here is a playlist of ‘music to walk to’ we commissioned from Melbourne-based artist Sui Zhen.
Stay safe and well.
