What is Land in curiosity?
Land in curiosity is a project creating walking, learning journeys to explore community, nature & self directed learning.
We are asking the question: What happens when a group of people come together in community, with the common purpose of deepening their relationship with the natural world and taking responsibility for their own learning and co-creation of the experience? Visit the website.
LiC is planning a year long walk around Britain from May 2019 - May 2020. Visit the website here.
my part in Lic
I started working with LiC shortly before the first walk.
So far my roles have been:
My intentions for LiC & the year long so far
LiC so far
So far, we have been on two journeys:
1. A Walk in Curiosity: May 2017
A Walk in Curiosity was a 10 day long walk across Dartmoor with 10 participants and 3 facilitators (Myself, Joana & Tom - Joana & Tom are both founders of LiC).
We walked about four hours per day, and spent around 4 hours studying. There was a focus on this walk around peer led and collective learning. It was spring (Beltane) so there was a lot of energy in and around the group. Workshops were held by different people on different explorations such as: foraging, bird language, interpretive dance, story telling, curiosity and theater of the oppressed. We spent much necessary time with practical things like cooking, setting up camp and taking it down, scouting for good places to camp, self care etc. It's currently legal to camp anywhere on Dartmoor national park.
2. Swedish Immersion: Autumn 2017
A Walk in Curiosity was a 2 month long walk in Sweden with 9 participants and 4 facilitators (Myself, Joana, Tom and Karl - Karl was on the Walk in Curiosity, so we invited him to join us). We held the group for the first two weeks of the journey and then attempted to pass over the roles, the roles included food team, route team, time keeper, learning and group facilitation team. We kept the roles or 'organisers' as it would have taken way too much time to impart all of the information from organising.
Autumn in Sweden is cold and dark, and knowing that we would be together for two months, there was a strong focus on process work and learning to live together. There was much less focus on self-led learning. It's legal to camp anywhere in Sweden so long as it's not in direct view of someones house.
