Slow Marathon 2018
Slow Marathon was co-concepted with Ethiopian artist Mihret Kebede in 2012. The 2018 route sees a collaborative Slow Marathon between artists May Murad from Gaza and Rachel Ashton from Huntly. Inspired by the botanical collections of pacifist Rosa Luxemburg, the artists are mapping out their routes by drawing inspiration from the wild plants they find in their respective places. Through the 'Walking Without Walls' partnership Rachel and May will be discovering how we can collaborate artistically and socially despite restrictive political situations.
The route will this year start near Dufftown and lead back to Huntly.
