Perambulater by Clare Qualmann
The word Perambulator has three meanings listed in the dictionary – a stroller or baby carriage, a person who walks, and a surveyor (on foot).
The Perambulator walk invites stroller users to walk together en masse around the Long Island City neighborhood, collectively surveying its challenges. When walked alone these impediments are an annoyance, and often unnoticed. Walking together with strollers heightens their visibility; the absurdity of multiple strollers negotiating each obstacle in their path enables a collective, creative and aesthetic reclamation of the mobility challenges when caring for children. Come and help us explore the obstacles and interruptions that the materiality of the street presents to the stroller user, creating a collective performance to make visible our presence.

Location: Flux Factory
Walk Length: approx. 2 hours (with opportunities to pause, rest and play)
