Proyecto Zapato Viajero / Travelling Shoe Project
Open call / First Collection of Shoes: Trinidad
Tuesday 2nd August 12.00 - 9.00 pm.

" We have been historically affected by migration; all in different ways. With this project I invite people to share their shoes as statements of where they have been and where they are going thus sharing movement and walking in each other's footsteps..."

The first stage of this project starts at Alice Yard. This will be the collection point in Trinidad. The collected shoes will be transported to Venezuela early the following morning. In Venezuela a similar call is being sent out to collect shoes to be brought over to Trinidad for the exchange. Once the shoes are exchanged, all actions and appropriations can be begin.

Tuesday 2nd August 12.00 -9.00 pm to drop off Shoes at Alice Yard

From 7. pm - 9. pm there will be open discussion to brainstorm and illustrate the possibilities of this exchange between all interested participants.

Once shoes are exchanged, the participant is responsible for what is done to the shoes.
The action is digitally documented and emailed to:

The documentation would then be posted on to the blog to share the process as it happens. When all actions are completed all shoes will be collected for a travelling show.
