Walk the Thames Trail

The Thames Trail is a project by Viewfinder Photography exploring the Greenwich Riverside. Viewfinder are producing an app to guide participants through the history of the area which will be launched shortly.  

Avant-Gardening's Paul Green has been invited to lead a walk along the river, from the Cutty Sark to the 02 looking at the nature that intermittently breaks through the historical industrial landscape. 

Download the Thames Trail app and bring your camera as we explore Greenwich's riverside landscape

Places on the walk are FREE but need to be booked in advance. For more information and to book a place visit http://viewfinder.org.uk/events/thames-trail-walk-with-paul-green-from-avant-gardening

Derek Jarman, The Queen is Dead
Derek Jarman, The Queen is Dead

Avant-Gardening's Paul is this months guest curator of the video space at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes. The films selected for this programme were chosen as they represent parts of a complex cycle of heightened emotions and the societal and psychological factors which can contribute to an individual’s perception of self. The films range from the reflective through to a pop art visualisation of war and destruction and explore the complexity of a symbiotic interaction between the individual and society.
