How many artists does it take to change the world? My theory is that you need fewer than 15 dedicated artists. What do you think? This is information I’m collecting for the March of the Artists, summer 2018; walking from Manchester to London in the footsteps of the Blanketeers in 1817 (only one Blanketeer reached London, the others were arrested and attacked by the time they got to Macclesfield). This Walk & Talk is about artist visibility. It’s all too easy to not notice artists and remove them from sight. The plan is to become indispensable.
