Isaac Newton may have actually walked the routes we are taking. Certainly he set out a map of ideas that others have followed and developed. As we walk we will listen for their footsteps and his, we will leave our own memory trail. We will be joining Newton in a conversation that has been running since our ancestors first walked these lands. We were once only connected by these paths, now we can connect instantly across the globe.
Ali Pretty and Richard White invite everyone who is taking part in the project to to contribute to the trail: to share thoughts and experiences, sounds and images.
Walkers are invited to bring sketchbooks and notebooks, to use their mobile phones to capture thoughts, sounds and images. Each walk has scheduled visits where there will be time to share, take photographs, record sound or draw. Those who are joining online are invited to contribute thoughts, questions, information and encouragement. At the end of the walk Richard will work with the media produced to add it to the map.
Those who are actually joining the walk will provide starting points for and respond to those who are geographically distant. One great big #NewtonParty !
