About the Walk

Led by Xin Cheng this walk will explore the crooks and crannies of Northcote between Jessie Tonar Scout Reserve and Te Kopua O Matakamokamo (Tuff Crater). Moving slowly and pausing to sense the changing landscape, we will explore ways of attending to our urban surroundings and mapping their myriad flows and rhythms.

Our host, Xin, was born in Kunming, China in 1983, and moved to Aotearoa with her family in 1996. She studied biology and psychology at The University of Auckland, before going to art school, where “the possibilities of walking, making, seeing, opened out” to her. Sharing these possibilities with other people is at the heart of everything she does.
