Without a Car in the World Public Program 3: Walking in LA with DJ Waldie – Tonight!
Despite being amongst the first to offer a preview of World Without a Car, the amazing car-free photography exhibit by Diane Meyer in Santa Monica, I’ve somewhat fallen down on the job of promoting the events that go with the exhibition. Well, I can correct that at least for one day. Below is an email from Meyer touting tonight’s panel discussion:
Nooteboom once wrote of LA, “In a city with streets longer than fifty
kilometers, the measure of one foot is absurd, and so is the use of
one’s feet as a means of transportation.” Taking it’s name from the
Missing Person’s song which claims that ‘Nobody Walks in LA,’ this
panel discussion will explore the social, spatial, and psychological
aspects of walking in Los Angeles.
