Close Encounters were a series of participatory guided art walks transforming the closes of Dumfries into alternate realities. Led by artist Greig Burgoyne and sociologist Andy Zieleniec, Close Encounters took place over two weekends in October 2017. Also including an artist talk and workshops in the run up to the guided walks, Close Encounters took audiences on a short route through the closes and side streets of the town centre, sharing new perspectives and ways of moving around public spaces.
