We began thinking about our new project Forward Footing during a walk in Northampton
We looked at details
thought about platforms
and staging posts for interventions.
We discussed where people might make
a temporary intervention during a walk.
In Kettering we spent more time exploring urban, everyday spaces
ledges, windowsills, greenery, disregarded areas and signage.
We also explored a range of easily obtainable items that held 'making on the move' potential as we want to create a kit that is portable, fun, easy to use, inspirational and accessible.
We met local people during both walks and shared some of our thoughts and observations to gauge whether we were on the right track with the contents of our kit and how it might benefit a wide range of ages and interests.
We came away from these two walks with a library of ideas for the kit.
