Entry is free (Registration Form must be complete), but please bring along R50 for lunch for the two days.

The workshop will take two days and includes walks in the urban space of Johannesburg. Walks will be conducted in small groups, which will allow each of you time to take photographs, make notes, and be more aware of your surroundings.
While a smartphone is suggested for the class, not having one will in no way diminish your experience of the walks and the workshop itself. You are also invited to bring along your cameras, a sketch-book and shoes that are comfortable to walk in. For the workshop, you will be provided with materials to draw on and make collages with. We will also be able to print out photos that you select from your walk, that you can use to create collages etc. If you're more comfortable using software like Photoshop and such, feel free to bring your laptop or tablet.

Happy to be joining the Urban Exploration community! If you'r up for a psychogeographic exploration of your urban space, take a look at our app based on The Situationist International theory around 'the dérive'. 
Dérive app gives you random tasks that you can choose to follow, and it tracks everything via gps, so you can log and share your urban explorations...

We are very open to suggestions and always trying to work with groups of urban enthusiasts like the Urban Exploration community.

Jennifer Acker has written an intriguing piece about the Abu Dhabi workshop held at NYU Abu Dhabi. Do hop over the ‘The Common’ to read her in-depth tale of dériving in an “oil-rich, start-up city”

Our first in a series of posts on Dérive Day 2013. We get some interesting feedback from Kampala, Toronto and Cairo.
