How might walking together yet apart provide an enriching pull of companionship as well as a broader awareness of our immediate environments? 

Reflecting on the loss of encounters with strangers during the long months of lockdown, we presented a gentle response to contemporary feelings of isolation and loneliness.

Through participatory kite making and flying workshops, we aimed to encourage reparative correspondences between groups of participants, material things, and the wind.
