Saunter Trek Escort Parade… (S.T.E.P…. ) is a co-curated walking based art show embracing the many ways and bodies we walk. While asking how walking as a creative act, can challenge notions and open conversations around visibility, gender, labor, exploration, counter mapping, colonialism, feminism, motherhood, contesting borders, community building, calling out gentrification, street harassment, (dis)ability, carbon debt, who sets the pace and measurement of the world, to the power of dreams and our entanglements between all of these and one another.
