‘Clocking Off’ Call for participation and participant information
Banner Making Workshop & getting to know you: CHAPTER, Cardiff 7th of April 14:00
Refreshments to be provided for dogs and humans.
Parade through Bute Park, Cardiff and gift giving: Sat 14th of April 14:00
‘Clocking Off’ is a commemorative parade for all working guide dogs, devised and organised by artist and researcher Kathryn Ashill. The aim of this work is to honour the working life of the guide dog and to celebrate the work the dogs do for the wellbeing of humans.
The priority of this performance is to ensure the parade not only brings joy to the people that participate, but most importantly that the dogs can enjoy it and be active collaborators.
If this feels like something you would like to be part of, then please get in touch.
Who We Need
Owners of any guide dogs, pets as therapy or assistance dogs who are happy to take part and be in the filmed documentation of the parade.
What we will be doing
- · Meeting in an informal workshop setting at Chapter Art Centre to meet participants, dogs, have refreshments and make banners with the dogs and all participants to be carried/used at the parade.
- Creating a short parade (duration: roughly around 30 mins) to celebrate the work that the dogs do and to give the working dog a gift. The parade will start at the Blackweir Bridge in Bute Park and end at the stone circle in the park.
- · Have fun together and celebrate
