SLOW DOWN, Walking and Cycling Festival

About

We all know: walking + cycling is healthy, reduces traffic congestion, and reduces carbon emissions. With the community of Huntly, Glasgow artist Jacqueline Donachie will look at opportunities for new work that is mobile, out on the streets and part of daily life. There is talk of a safe bike lane, but who knows what it would look like? Her proposition is a community cycle drawing that might show us all. Using a smart attachment for cycle wheels a ribbon of colour criss-crossing the town is created by the townsfolk and visitors. The necessary road and parking restrictions will perhaps begin a discussion about mobility and car use in our towns. This community performance is part of a wider cycling and walking festival with story walks, cycling workshops, special trips and tracks, a symposium on car-free-towns and a solstice fire on top of the hill… Slow is beautiful!
