Tour To The Great Big Fart Towers of Sydney
The date: Sunday 6th October
The time: 2:00 – 5:00 pm
The event: Vent Spotting Field Tour
The place: The intersection of Elizabeth and Bathurst Streets, Hyde Park, Sydney
This Field Tour is a collaborative workshop in exploring the sewerage infrastructure at large within the city (or more accurately under it). A tour to key spots of Sydney’s sewer system, we meet at the Hyde Park Obelisk Sewer Vent (Elizabeth and Bathurst Streets) and walk via William Street to Taylor Square on Oxford Street.
I would like to invite you to take part in creating a space in which walking allows us to create connections to place through sensory inquiry, conversation, telling stories and the spotting of vents; a space where walking can be productive of more than physical exercise. There is no wrong way to contribute, you can tell a story, share your sewage facts, spot vents or simply be there and every contribution is appreciated.
As a token of appreciation for your generosity in helping to make this happen, I will be giving each participant a zine to commemorate the event.
