ABOUT HAMILTON PERAMBULATORY UNIT (HPU)

The Hamilton Perambulatory Unit is a group of artists, writers and educators, co-founded in 2014 by Donna Akrey, Taien Ng-Chan and Sarah E. Truman. The HPU orchestrates participatory events to engage with historical and current ideas around perambulation, and to explore walking in conjunction with artistic practices and research-creation. The focus of each perambulation is a sensory exploration of the city/self in relation with a pre-read text, artistic notion, or philosophical work, and some enabling constraints (eg. in a set neighbourhood, or by using instruments of chance). The HPU has given walks in Montreal, Toronto, Windsor, Sydney Australia, London England, Buffalo NY, and our home base of Hamilton Ontario.
