Using the highwire walker as a metaphor, this talk will look at different ways we can make sense of our city. As a society that has become accustomed to looking down at mobile phones, how can we shift our sense of perspective to reconsider the wider environment, encouraging us to notice the often imperceptible and to shift our viewing to a 360o approach. This talk will take the form of a Q&A with cultural geographer Dr. Phil Jones, highwire walker Chris Bullzini and Director of Birmingham’s unique Still Walking festival Ben Waddington.
