'WALKSY.' WALKING APP | MAY 2021

The new walking app conceived by Art Walk's founder, Rosy Naylor, was launched with a led-walk around Portobello's changing urban environment during May 2021.

'Walksy.' (or Walk & See) offers a creative way to record our outdoors whilst we walk. The App enables a growing library of walks to be created that will document many of the Art Walk's artist walks as well as collect user's own walks of their nearby; documenting the 'moments' we experience when we walk, by uploading images, audio and text.

For the launch, Rosy invites participants to walk with her exploring the edges of Western Portobello's changing landscape, from its past working land to new Baileyfield developments, and areas of current industrial land. Recording some of the moments that mark this transition between the old and the new, the walk will touch the edge of where we can and cannot walk, embracing some of the sounds that mark this period of change.

Walk lasts approx 1.5hrs.

The walk starts from the kilns, Bridge Street, Portobello. Max participants: 15 people. The App is available for download using the links below.
