Nightwalks with Teenagers

Nightwalks with Teenagers is created with local youth who plan, design and lead public walks through the city at night, exploring the urban landscape. Nightwalks with Teenagers is focused on the power of walking together, inviting teens and adults to have a unique social experience in a shared place and time, where everyone can let loose, and silences offer moments for contemplation.

These kids give us the gift of being allowed to behave like children again.

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian (2015)

One of the most captivating projects that it made me recall my teenage days with such fondness that it bursts out of my chest.

Bob Gelsthorpe, This is Tomorrow (2015)
