Walking into the night: experiencing darkness and the natural world – EcoFest 13 April

13/04/2023  7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Kaipātiki Project EcoHub, 17 Lauderdale Road, Birkdale

Event details

The evening will start just on dark when we will gather at the Kaipatiki Ecohub.  Annette will then walk us into the rising dark, sharing ecological and human tales of the night as we go.   During the walk we will explore our relationship to darkness, using our senses, imagination and night-altered powers of observation.  We will return to the Ecohub for hot drinks.

This walk will take place in darkness to allow us to experience the true night.  We will provide soft red torchlight.  If you have a red-light torch you are welcome to bring it as a personal backup.  We’d ask that you not use non-red torches nor your phones.  Bring warm clothes and sturdy footwear.  The evening is unsuitable for children aged  under 10.
