This is Walkspace

Walkspace is a collective of writers and artists in the West Midlands who are intrigued by walking in all its forms.

From gentle strolls to hardcore psychogeography, group walks to solo explorations, Walkspace covers the interesting, weird edges of the humble perambulation. There are no right or wrong ways to go for a walk but there are definitely ways to make them curious and enlightening.

We launched in February 2020, shut down for the pandemic and are gradually finding our feet again. We hope you'll join us and get involved!

Extreme Noticing under Lockdown is a presentation we gave in September to the 4th World Congress on Psychogeography and serves as a good introduction to where we're coming from.

Current Projects

A Figure Walks is Megan Henebury's exploration of Birmingham's River Rea which Walkspace is helping to document.

Mapping Stirchley is an attempt to document all the overlooked things we noticed during our lockdown walks. Contributions are welcome from anyone who walks in the Birmingham suburb of Stirchley and the map will be used for future walking exploits.
