Emissary for the 2015 Elastic City Walks Festival


6 artist-led walks, 4 talks, 4 "ways", 1 benefit party
Various locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York, NY
June 2015 - August 2015

Elastic City commissions artists working in different fields to create their own participatory walks for the public-- often using sensory-based techniques, reinvented folk rituals and other exercises to investigate and intervene with the daily life of the city, its variously defined communities, and the politics of individual and group identity.
