Find the way around the city’s edge that suits you, knowing that it may differ from the paths taken by others.
Stay as close to the border as possible, within reason.
Prioritize your safety & obey the law at all times.
Treat all that you encounter with respect.
If you encounter an obstacle, simply walk around it.
Pick up at least one piece of trash along the way.
Be open to finding beauty in unexpected places.
Be open to fatigue, discomfort, pain, frustration too.
There is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.
Use smart devices for navigation & documentation as needed, but we highly recommended that you keep them in airplane mode & disable notifications so as to be fully present with your fellow pilgrims. You can share about it on social media later!
Mark your progress in the passport. Plan for your next segment.
Share experiences & photos as you see fit. You can use the hashtag #WalkAroundPhiladelphia and tag @WalkAroundPhiladelphia on Instagram and @WalkAroundPhila on Twitter.
Send a reportback video response and/or a few images from your adventures to JJ to help support the project.
Make sure you’re getting updates for future Walk-Around-Philadelphia events and invites.
