We are conscious that a programme of ‘walking’ has a tendency to exclude differently abled people by design. In response to this we have placed the question of access at the forefront of the development process for the project. As part of this we have commissioned works from artists of different physical abilities and asked all artists to consider wheeled access to their walk.
Thanks to the Auckland Council we have funding for interpreters for selected walks and are interested in hearing from groups who may benefit from this opportunity.
We will clearly signal the access level of each walk and support available and will do our best to ensure access where possible.
If you want to participate in a walk and need any support to do so that we have not considered please contact the curators on firstname.lastname@example.org
We acknowledge the presence of the Rāhui over the Waitākere Ranges. Any walks undertaken in this area will be on the tracks that have been upgraded and reopened with the consent of Te Kawerau ā Maki or areas not affected by the Rāhui.
Walking about is, in part, a response to the Rāhui and allows us to consider alternative recreational opportunities at this time.
