Walk With Us: Walking Forest Coventry 15th & 16th October

 

Will you be part of raising a collective voice for climate, racial and social justice? 

We invite Coventry & Warwickshire Women inspired by nature to be part of Walking Forest Coventry - a street-based, city-wide mobile performance happening from dawn to dusk on the 15th and 16thOctober 2021 created with local women.  

Will you stand up for Nature in Coventry?

We invite you to carry a felled tree as it moves through the streets of Coventry - an act of endurance and love for the planet and future generations. Planting seeds of courage across the city as we move.  

Be part of a unique experience. Find your voice. 

There are many ways to join in:

Walking Forest walker and Tree Carrier - This is an act of endurance, love and ceremony and there will be many breaks and stops along the walk.   We all have different voices, physical abilities and stamina and this will be taken into account as we carry the tree together. This is an inclusive engagement opportunity where we will work as a group.  Care for ourselves and valuing each other's contributions will be at the heart of this event. 

We ask you to commit to:

  1. Wednesday 13th October - rehearsal 5.30- 8.30pm (essential for all)
  2. Attending Walking Forest ; 7.30am - 1.30pm or 1pm - 7pm slot  either Friday 15th or Saturday 16th October (or both days) 

You will work with other women and those who identify as women of all ages, backgrounds and abilities - no previous experience required. 

As a voluntary opportunity we will cover reasonable costs for travel and nourishing food will be provided. We can also support individual access needs as required.  

Walking Forest Steward - This is an important role, supporting the Walk and all activities that happen under it and talking to and engaging with passersby and handing out information.
