We are currently researching a new edition of The Walking Reading Group, which will explore the theme of care. In June 2017, Jersey Arts Trust are generously hosting us for a residency focused on developing this edition.
We think that care is urgent on a number of levels – as a response to the commercialisation of care, invisibility and lack of recognition of care, as direct action against dismantling of the NHS, and as a challenge to increasingly precarious lifestyles. We want to consider care as a political response in the face of a divided society, ongoing competition, and the instability of being able to live/work in or outside of the UK.
If you know of any texts (e.g. books, magazines, articles, podcasts, films) or people we should acquaint ourselves with, please drop us a line at walkingreadinggroup(at)gmail(dot)com.
