THE DESIRE PATHS

“If you could rename a street of your town after a hope, dream or ambition for the future, what would you choose?”

The Desire Paths is a participatory, story-swapping, map-making performance for public spaces. We chalk out a large scale map of a town centre and we invite the public to rename the streets of their towns after a hope for the future: personal, political, playful and profound. Click the links below to see images and films of the performances, and read the renamed streets and the stories behind them.
