In October 2019, we hosted a guided walk in partnership with Voluntary Arts Scotland around Dumfries in the company of cultural activists from Scotland and Ireland called ‘Walking with Common Cause’. The event was inspired by ‘Making Common Cause‘ – a collection of essays exploring the commons, published by Voluntary Arts.
Starting from The Stove at 100 High Street, we stopped at places of importance in the town, with speakers discussing topics which included the rights to take part in culture, community, food, language, knowledge and nature.
Walking with Common Cause continued on to The Stove where the evening continued with refreshments and a discussion inspired by the walk and led by poet Tom Pow.
Walking with Common Cause is now available to listen to as an audio guide, via Soundcloud.
