Neo-futuristic Walks is a series of “walkable” city inspections that shape a community of neo-futurists who collectively re-imagine new ways of urban coexistence. Through the act of walking, neo-futurists explore the primal bodily experience’s role in unfolding new relationships in and with urban environments. They employ context-sensitive speculative scenarios to live in constant preparations for the inescapable urban futures. Neo-futurists see the cities as huge lively ecosystems where every individual’s well-being is interdependent.
The first set of Neo-futuristic Walks started in Vilnius and London where an interdisciplinary community of students and other creatives were gathered for four months of city inspections.
In June 2021, the project as a performative tour was presented at the London Festival of Architecture 2021. In August 2021, a parallel event took place in Vilnius. At the moment Neofuturistic Walks is developing further as a ‘’walkable’’ city movement and it is gathering a bigger community of neo-futurists all across Europe.
