The Long Walk, a time-based, “open-source”, and participatory event, was originally developed by artist Susan Robb in collaboration with Stokley Towles as part of 4Culture’s Trails Project in 2010. Robb continued and expanded the adventure in 2011 and 2012, leading 50 self-selecting participants through the cities, suburbs, farmlands, and forests of King County via the Regional Trails System (RTS). Over the course of 4 days and 45 miles – walking from Puget Sound to Snoqualmie Falls – the groups experienced a shift in their sense of time, a new understanding of the local geography, and the creation of an interstitial culture.
