As part of the National Review of Live Art, Glasgow (11th – 15th February), New Work Network (NWN) and Space Station 65 are supporting Expedition Basecampment.
Expedition Basecampment is an invitation to take a journey that explores the National
Review of Live Art and Glasgow as you've never seen them before, considering the boundaries between storytelling and journeying.
Expedition parties will meet their logistical support officers at the project's basecamp at the NWN info exchange table at The Arches on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th February and journey from Basecamp to the dizzying heights of Basecampmental.
To provide explorers with spiritual and psychological sustenance on their journeys, inspirational gurus, will be waiting to meet each group and guide explorers with motivational sessions and altitude-defying narratives.
Expedition Basecampment provides participants an opportunity to examine the performative nature of travel by constructing a memorable narrative of NRLA 2009; looking at myth-making and information exchange, and collectively contributing to a unique newsletter. The project also offers participants the opportunity to explore structures of contemporary media and knowledge exchange, in a playful and unconventional manner.
