Instructions for Walking Women

Instructions for Walking Women is a growing archive of instructions for walking, written by and for women.

The archive is continuously developed through workshops and interventions in a variety of settings. The cards generated during these workshops are used as prompts to explore the way that women experience and navigate public space.

Instruction cards are also designed to be used privately – outside of workshop settings – as discreet methods for walking and considering who is allowed to walk where, and how.

A selection of instructions which formed a booklet for the Walking Festival of Sound in October 2019 can be here.

Instructions for Walking Women workshops have been programmed as part of the Sisters Uncut takeover at NewBridge Gallery during the Hidden Civil War programme (2016) and the Walking Festival of Sound (Newcastle, 2019).
