Walkshop | Bloomsbury

On your Bloomsbury Urban Curiosity Walkshop you will explore London's literary locale with a fresh perspective and and leave armed with practical tips to reframe your digital life and cultivate every day curiosity.

During the two-hour walkshop discover Bloomsbury's streets and alleys on foot and: 

  • look up, not down into a glowing screen
  • reacquaint yourself with analogue tools: pencil and paper
  • consider your relationship with your smart devices
  • learn how to reconnect with the urban environment through simple prompts and observational exercises
  • boost your creative confidence
  • breathe deeply, make eye contact and discover hidden pockets of the city.

Best of all? Words, concepts, pitches, plans, art, mind maps, arguments and ideas - any of these may come.

Enjoy time to think, notice and dawdle:

  • reflect on what community means as we pass by Conway Hall on Red Lion Square and walk towards The People's Collective

  • draw on the inspiring window displays on Lamb's Conduit Street and play with the notions of neighbours, privacy and lifecycle.

  • explore the links between literature, London and its citizens as we approach Bloomsbury Square.
