Beating The Bounds participatory walk

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Elephant & Castle doesn't exist as a political ward, yet it takes shape in the imaginations of people who live and work in the area.

Artists Corinne Silva + Eva Sajovic invite LCC students, staff and members of the community to join them for a participatory walk, led by Revd Dr Peter Stevenson, the minister of Crossway United Reformed Church.

Peter will explain his personal boundaries of the Elephant & Castle, and share the story of the church's one hundred year engagement with local people.

Beating the Bounds is an ancient English custom in which a priest and members of the community, armed with willow boughs, would beat the parish boundary markers, lest they be forgotten.

This is one of a series of walks, all of which are digitally traced using an app.

The artists will then superimpose the resulting drawings to identify a collective boundary of the area and use them, along with photographs made by walk participants, to produce a multi-media map.

Beating the Bounds is supported by LCC Public Programmes.
