WALKING THE WAY – Dec 11th & 12th

WALKING THE WAY a piece I have been working on (with many helpers!) for the past two months in Brightmoor on Detroit’s west side.

WALKING THE WAY is an audio walking tour through a unique and growing community in Detroit. The WALK  is self-guided tour through gardens, parks and open space in a Brightmoor neighborhood accompanied by recorded stories and reflections of the people who live and work there.

The audience will be given a set of headphones, discman/ipod and a map of the route.  They will then walk a route through the neighborhood visiting 11 sites. The sites consist of market gardens, community gardens, parks and open space. A piece of recorded material accompanies each site. The audio consists of stories and reflections of the people in the community that work and live on the sites. In my recording process I asked the following questions which the participants responded to each in their own particular style:
What used to be here?
How has this place changed for you since you began working here?
What do you like about this neighborhood?
What are your dreams and ideas for the future of the neighborhood?

The tour will take place on December 11th & 12th, 2010.                                                     Tours will begin at 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, 2:30pm on both days.
