Opening: 
Saturday, 12 November 2022 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Take a stroll through Hackney Marshes in this introduction to fungi and their connections to mutual aid and alternative futures with community gardener, artist and writer Maymana Arefin (aka. @fungi.futures). 

After an initial grounding exercise, we will ramble through the marshes thinking, feeling, and learning through fungi and discovering what fungal encounters and the ‘wood wide web’ could embody for collective care. There will also be guided and independent time for participants to free-write, draw or sit with particular mushrooms and imagine what they might represent for worldbuilding and futures. 

This walk will be focused on learning and spending time with fungi, rather than foraging and taking from the land. But, feel free to bring a jar or cloth bag etc. with you if you do want to take some things away. 

Exact meeting point in Hackney Marshes will be released to all sign ups closer to the time, after you have booked your tickets.
