Art + Psychogeography

Join us for a free walk and talk event exploring how environments can effect emotions and how walking can be seen as way to creatively explore different places, with a focus on the rural.

We’ll explore the village of Kings Cliffe in the company of artist Kate Genever and community walker Carole Wright, discussing how psychogeography inspires their practice, starting and ending up at The Cross Keys pub.

Kate Genever is an artist and farmer based in South Lincolnshire on her family’s traditional mixed farm. She completed an MA at the Royal College in Printmaking and has been commissioned by organisations such as Yorkshire Sculpture Park, METAL Peterborough, The Wellcome Collection, British Council, Tate and Hull City of Culture. Much of her work sees her co-producing outcomes with individuals, groups, artists, curators and academics in diverse settings such as her family farm, a Yorkshire council estate, a women’s prison, Hull, a caravan park, Venice, and an asylum seekers charity.

“I embed myself in places, often over long periods and the work begins in the personal encounters and conversations I initiate. This person-centred, site-responsive, approach allows for a deep connection resulting in drawings, photographs, prints and curated events.”

Kate Genever


Carole Wright is a community gardener, apiarist, walker and proud South Londoner from Brixton. She has won two awards from The Southbank Centre and The Peadbody Trust for her community work, and this year, Carole joined a team of community advocates to join ‘The Big Lunch Community Walk’, showing the importance of communication and how it can bring about positive change.

“I want to promote the simple act of walking and talking as a point of accessibility, which aren’t dependant on social, cultural or financial status in society. I love walking, I always have. I love just following my feet.”
