T100 Calling: Sign up for walks and help create artworks along the Thames
Bookings open for T100 Calling, Kinetika’s annual walking, talking and making festival.
Kinetika is delighted to announce that bookings are open for the rescheduled T100 walking, talking and making festival: T100 Calling - 12th- 27th September.
Over the five years that T100 has taken place, each year has had a different theme. This year join Kinetika for a series of walks and picnics along the Thames Estuary, starting and ending in the newly named Purfleet–on–Thames. T100 Calling is a call to action to rise to local challenges through the collective process of designing and making beautiful large-scale mandalas. Together walkers and artist from Kinetika will creatively re-imagine how everyone can make a difference in their communities for future generations.
T100 Calling launches at the High House Production Park on Saturday 12th September with a preview of the T100 exhibition and lunch in the walled garden. The Southend leg of the festival is this year online: On 13th and 15th September, people can explore the foreshore and a local green space, create a mandala from found materials and share online. Kinetika has been working with Southend Beach Care to create mandalas on the beach.
The walks then link key locations at which mandalas will be made. More information on the events can be found here.
All T100 Calling walks are free but booking is essential. All T100 Calling events have been planned in line with Government advice in relation to Covid – 19 and as a result places are limited and must be booked in advance. All events will be for a maximum of 30 people operating in bubbles of 6. As a result, some walks and activities must be booked separately.
