Who are you inspired by? Who do you think of when you are scared? Who writes the words that provoke you to walk out into the wild? Who might you take with you?
In 2018 a community of women adventures, artists and writers came together through the pages of a book; the Waymaking anthology. The ability to break ground, make first ascents, to pioneer comes as much from confidence in one’s surrounding network as in ones self. How can we learn from and encourage each other to step into the unknown; be it a first attempt at a poetry, a solo highland walk, an act of activism.
Kathleen Jones, Geraldine Green, Ruth Wiggins and Polly Atkin are four of our most curious and creative writers, their identities shaped by sense of place and embodiment, their fight for opportunity, diversity and environment. Join Waymaking co-editor and Kendal Mountain Festival Artistic Director Claire Carter in conversation with these four fascinating women as they tell stories of solitude, love, illness, freedom, adventure, past and future. Together they will weave a web across generations and landscapes, to connect women together via paths in through the wilderness.
