This artist’s statement describes the development of a participatory performance project ‘Perambulator’. Conceived in response to the shift in walking practice experienced in early motherhood, the project invited other pram users (predominantly mothers) to walk together exploring and highlighting the everyday awkwardness of pram use in the city. Alongside an overview of the projects’ methods: walking, talking and mapping,
connections to walking art and participatory art practices are considered.
