June 22 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Join the artists for a nighttime walk to the garden under the full moon where participants will spend time observing the vibrant world active during the nighttime as well as their own sensory responses to the night. Guided by the artists, participants will explore how to shift their sensory perception, and consider how other beings, like moths, sense the world.

Participants will meet in the parking lot and the walk to the garden is about 15 minutes along a gravel roadway with mowed grass paths which have some uneven surfaces and slight to moderate inclines. Because the garden and walk involve encounters with other beings in their own sensory worlds, please avoid the use of insect repellants and other scented products. Bug suits will be available, or you are welcome to bring your own. We also recommend wearing long sleeves.

Please check your email in the afternoon if the weather looks ominous as we will be in touch as soon as possible if we plan to reschedule. We are tentatively holding June 23 at 9:00 pm as a rain date. Otherwise, we will be outside for the program and so encourage you to dress for the weather with comfortable footwear for walking. Bring your curiosity, creativity, and a sense of adventure!

This event is presented by the Art Gallery of Guelph in partnership with the Department of Geography and School of English and Theatre Studies with the support of the University of Guelph Wellness@Work program.
