Walk & Talk is a series of free events inspired by our current exhibitions ‘Don McCullin. The Stillness of Life’ and ‘Not Vital. SCARCH’.
Embark on an inspiring walk through the local landscape with different specialists. Discover the history, folklore and hidden gems of Bruton town and Durslade Farm, learn how artists capture the changing seasons, and reflect on the ethos of the countryside with independent retailers and residents.
Join us for a walk with Natalie Jones, founder of Caro
, a design and lifestyle brand and independent store located in Bruton, and most recently Outland
, a creative platform centred around ‘connection’.
Outland invites founders of emerging businesses, or individuals starting out on their own, to talk through the obstacles they are facing in their work with a group of industry professionals. The platform serves to enable others to ‘explore foreign territories, boundaries and place’.
According to research at Stanford University, walking leads to creative thinking. The nature of walking and the aversion of eye contact is seen to break down formalities and ease inhibitions making for a more authentic conversation.
The format of the walk involves buddying up with ‘Mentors’ whose specialities include Branding, Social Media, Trends, and Crowdfunding, as well as a journey of self discovery to face any ‘boundaries’ that you might be experiencing within your business. By immersing ourselves in nature, and not staring at a computer or phone screen, we hope to discover new purpose and emerge with a clearer sense of how to move forward in the world.
