Walking Festival

There is no Internet in the flat I am staying in which is why the blog is not being updated very often, so writing this from work at the end of the day. Hopefully this will be sorted very soon and I can start adding pictures.

As part of the Walking Festival currently taking place in Huntly I will be taking part in Deveron Arts Hamish Fulton walk taking place on Sunday. This involves a 5 hour walk to the edge of the Cairngorms where we will watch Hamish as he disappear’s into the distance to spend 21 days in the Cairngorms. Preceding this on Saturday will be an Arts breakfast and talk with Hamish and Deveron Arts current Shadow Curator Mary Jane Jacobs, a choreographed walk in Huntly, and a Tim Brennan manoeuvre up at Battlehill Woods. Ending the night with a Céilidh, and possibly the famous Strathbogie Disco.

Tonight at 6pm, however I am going on Tim Brennans walk around Deveron Arts Town Collection, where he will talk about the various art works in the collection.

About Ben Jones

I am an artist and curator, interested mainly in web-based work, video, drawing and animation. I have exhibited locally, nationally and internationally gaining commissions as well as working with communities and in schools on projects. I have worked for a variety of different organisations from an artist run studio and gallery to a large contemporary gallery in a number of different roles. My practice deals with how the reality we live in is constructed by media, where there are many different beliefs, which can be accepted, rejected or modified. I am interested in the disintegration of traditional social discussion and debate, due to media saturation, and how it now manifest’s itself in many new and technological ways.
