24th May 2012 Join me, with baby Ernest in the pram, for a walk from Lewisham Art House. 'Perambulator' explores navigation, way finding and collective decision making (with the added encumbrance of prams). We will decide on the day where to go and how to get there using a range of tools: from local knowledge to locative media, observing the inaccessibilities and obstructions that impact on our route as we go.

Babies and Children welcome, as are non-pram users!

The walk is the second in a series of performances entitled 'Chain', which continue until 10.30pm at the Art House. More info here:
