Nightwalks with Teenagers





Nightwalks with Teenagers is a walking performance created in collaboration with two groups of young people (one local, one non-local), who plan, design and lead public walks through the city at night, sharing their favourite parts of the neighbourhood with members of the community. The project brings together teens and adults who might not otherwise meet, to have experiences related to a shared place and time; it offers an opportunity for adults to socialize with young people in a safe social space, where everyone can let loose, and silences offer moments for contemplation. Nightwalks with Teenagers is focused on the pro-social ameliorative power of walking together, and is inspired in part by the Situationist notion of the “derive,” as well as psychogeographic wanderings through the city.
