Your Space Or Mine

WALK – monthly urban art walks with Alisa Oleva

A series of free monthly urban art walks over a period of one year.

As part of our latest Your Space Or Mine project, we are delighted to announce the appointment of performance and walking artist Alisa Oleva as Artist in Residence, commissioned to work from BUILDHOLLYWOOD’s new creative space, The CarWash, in Shoreditch.

“Each month I will host a walk which will start at The CarWash venue and then venture into the surrounding neighbourhood. Every walk will have a different theme, exploring the everyday, sensorial ways of engaging with the city, sounds, textures, memories and histories, emotional map-making, and the politics of public space”.

Where does the city take you? Where do you turn next? Who walks these streets? What’s the sound of your own footsteps? Who owns the city? What’s here, and what do we wish was still here? Where do you find yourself now? These and more questions will emerge as we accompany Alisa on her experimental urban walks.

Alisa’s walks will offer an act of collective close looking and reimagining – opening up spaces we don’t usually notice to make visible different ways of being in, and thinking about, the city.

We would love you to join one of the walks as a one-off or come along regularly. They will mostly take place every last Sunday of the month at 2pm for approximately two hours, and will proceed in any weather.

Our second walk, ‘listen’ takes place 30 June, 2pm – 4pm. This event is free to attend. However spaces are limited, please RSVP.
