Elastic City intends to make its audience active participants in an ongoing poetic exchange with the places we live in and visit.
Artists are commissioned by Elastic City to create their own 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.
Elastic City's 2014 programming consists of a free 12 day New York City-based participatory walk festival in September. All the info is here. The festival features walks by artists and talks on the walk form. Throughout the year, we are also producing a series of artist-led workshops (a.k.a. "ways"). Elastic City will also offer other walks and ways for the public and for private groups, as commissioned.
