Step x Step: Walking as Remapping

The Art Gallery of Guelph is pleased to present a series of walks that offer new insight into everyday landscapes in our community.

Led by artists and community members, the series not only supports local knowledge, but highlights how walking can be a means of resisting how place in perceived in conventional maps—as well as the colonialism, racism, and ableism that has informed them. Each walk will focus on different aspects and areas of the city of Guelph, bringing awareness to histories and environments that may have been erased or are hidden from view. Join us for each walk in this series that collectively remaps the city’s public history with everyday experiences.
