As part of a research project titled Thinking urban spaces differently: Articulating and contesting ‘green’ imageries of Bristol as an enterprising city”, Pam Seanor, Senior Lecturer in Strategy and Enterprise, is looking for participants for a collective walk.

The walk will meet at 12.15pm on June 12th at the footbridge over the River Avon nr. Sparke Evans Park.

The idea of a collective walk is that it enables ideas to flow more freely than they might do if sat behind a desk.

Pam is interested to hear about what Bristol means to you and if you see any perceived benefits between “green” spaces and wellbeing. The wander will also discuss feelings of ownership towards areas visited on the walk. She is keen to hear from local residents, people who use green spaces for leisure and those that work in Bristol.

This is the third walk that Pam has hosted as part of the project. In Autumn 2017, she will be hosting a workshop “Exploring Spaces of “Green” Practices”. The workshop will include a short film of the walks and will collaboratively explore the different narratives identified on the walks. Additionally there will be a report shared on how walking and talking with other can help social change. Anyone who took part in the walk will be invited to attend the workshop but it will also be open to anyone who is simply interested in learning more about the project.

The walk is part of a series of events run by the Festival of Nature.

Places are free but most be booked. Email Pam for more information and to register your place: Pam.seanor@uwe.ac.uk
