Walkative Across RCA
Taking place as part of Across RCA, the Royal College of Art’s annual week long series of cross-disciplinary projects, Walkative’s propositional starting point was that the city / London contains narratives, knowledge and contested materialities best accessed through walking. The projects between 2013 – 2015 brought together a new trans-disciplinary field of artists, writers, musicians, human geographers and philosophers to consider further how, for student practitioners in art and design, the city walk can inform and trigger new processes of making, thinking, researching and communicating.
