Join artist Alice Highet on this sensory walk of Durham City, followed by an art workshop in Palace Green Library

As a part of the Summer in the City Arts Festival, join artist Alice Highet on this sensory walk of Durham City.

Starting in Palace Green Library, we will begin our walk on the UNESCO world heritage site and continue down by the riverside.

Throughout the sensory walk we will complete meditative listening and drawing exercises. This will help us to start to think about our environment in a multi-sensory way, including sight, touch and sound.

At the end of the walk, we will then return to Palace green Library to engage in an art workshop. Thinking about the sounds we have heard on our walk, we will make a flip book drawing the moving sounds.

Please note: This workshop will take place both inside of Palace Green Library and outdoors, in the areas surrounding the museum. While every effort will be made to ensure the use of clear accessible pathways, there may be some uneven surfaces and steep banks due to the nature of the walk.
