PuSh Festival continues to connect with creators and audiences with innovative projects. Push Walks is a unique invitation to take a safe walk with artists through the urban spaces that have given them inspiration. The artists have recorded audio for walks of 1-2 km, with a start and destination point. Whenever you choose, don a pair of headphones and embark on a journey through the city, experiencing the terrain from fresh perspectives.
Explore the streets, parks, and other stretches of land as the artists give new dimensions and insights as to what gives them meaning. Push Walks are a chance to hear the artists’ voices, directly and without mediation; it’s also a way to connect people across time and space, on the common grounds of geography, history, and art.
There are now six Push Walks released wherever you get your podcasts. To find detailed descriptions and listen visit pushfestival.ca/walks
