Walking in the Rain invited participants to contemplate the rain. It took place along the Cooks River, one of Sydney’s most complex storm water management systems. The walk will took place rain, hail or shine. The central idea was that if it was raining, we would all walk together, if it was sunny a chorus of raindrops lead the walk and imitated the weather in a series of dances, poems and songs. Participants brought tea and snacks and we had a picnic at the end.
