Gang Days Walk
5 May 2017 – Walk 5.30pm & reception in a tipi from 6.30pm
The Edge, University of Bath
Vulpes Vulpes will lead a performative walk along a section of the University of Bath boundary lines. Inspired by an old custom Beating the Bounds – dating back to medieval times whereby a group of old and young people of the community would walk the parish boundaries, beating it with birch or willow to determine the territory and share the knowledge of the land. They would also bump the heads of the boys of the community on each of the boundary stones in an attempt to make them remember.
The walk will end with a picnic on the green at The Edge and a chance to see the installation Gang days by Vulpes Vulpes, along with a display of their findings during the two-month residency.
FREE – PLEASE BOOK TO SECURE A PLACE (LIMITED TICKETS)
Meet in The Edge foyer from 5.20pm – please wear suitable footwear and clothing.
