GUIDED WALK ‘LOITERING IN THE NOT QUITE SPACES’

CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS

A special psychogeographical exploration for Not Quite Light Weekend….

Join us as we weave together facts, fiction and fairy stories about Salford’s past, present and

future. This walk resists the dominant place shaping narratives; instead will uncover hidden

histories, spaces and power relations which have shaped our streets, As we drift together we

will hear tales of wanderers, poets, rebels, magicians and a plethora of local

psychogeographers. Psychogeography focuses on how the environment makes us feel and

how we can create the city of our dreams as we wander. I invite you for a twilight drift to

decode the palimpsest of the streets and discover the extraordinary in the everyday. In the

words of The LRM (Loiterers Resistance Movement) “our city is wonderful and made for more

than shopping. The streets belong to everyone and we want to reclaim them for play and

revolutionary fun…” Expect a participatory guided walk that is equal measures performance,

rant, tribute and tour.

The small but important print:

Please be advised this walk contains explicit feminist geography, swearing and frank

discussions. The walk will take place on pavements and public spaces so participants are

politely reminded to be mindful of their environment and take care, especially when crossing

roads. Please dress appropriately (however you define that) for the weather. Numbers are

limited so please book in advance, if you have any specific access needs please get in touch.

The start and finish point will be announced to ticket holders.
