Walkie Talkies

If you want to solve a problem, you have to walk the talk!

 

Walkie-talkies are loosely guided conversations that descend into valleys and climb to great heights.  With blood pumping in our veins and the changing environment stimulating our brains we dare to challenge our assumptions and surprise ourselves in articulating fresh ideas.

Our meetings of minds are made all the better when our bodies are preoccupied with putting one foot in front of the other. Furthermore, there is a joyful inability to check your emails on the hoof in the sticks and there’s not even the distraction of eye-contact and body language when your eyes on the path walking single-file or side-by-side.

 

Charles Dickens once said: “There is no problem so great that it can’t be walked through.” Or was that Hemmingway? Or Wordsworth?

There’s a long list of great artists, leaders and thinkers who have attributed their greatness to the fact that they’ve also been great walkers! Kilter’s Walkie-Talkie programme is our humble bid to join the club!

 

Caroline and Olly have a long history of tramping the footpaths of this green and pleasant land and can absolutely trace landmark moments in Kilter’s creative journey to particular physical journeys in the landscape. We clamber up Solsbury Hill during rehearsals to tease out knotty plot points. We brainstorm our 5-year plans on long traipses across windy Lansdown and stir up pioneering environmental schemes plodding along the tow-path to Bradford on Avon.

 

We run ad hoc Walkie-Talkies open to the general public as the mood takes us and an interesting conversation feels like it needs thrashing out. We are also happy to tailor-make Walkie-Talkies for groups of people that want to spend a day or half-day bonding over an issue and sharing revelations and blisters. Please get in touch if this sounds like you!
