Immersive Story and Walk with Pop-Up Magazine

part of a series on Biophilia


About the speaker

Community, we’re switching it up this month! After its smashing success as a FieldTrip, we’re excited to bring you a special CreativeMornings/New York experience with Pop-Up Magazine.

Grab some comfortable walking shoes, your headphones and mask, because we’re going on a walk together. Pop-Up Magazine has created an immersive story for you to enjoy while walking. Actress Jenny Slate, Anna Sale (Death, Sex & Money), Antwan Miller (Ear Hustle), author and radio host Lulu Williams, writer Sam Jay (Saturday Night Live), and more invite you to look around and imagine as they share walking stories — profound, unexpected, moving, and life-changing.

Participants will log into the virtual experience on Zoom, join us for some stretches, and then set on a walking journey set to headphones. If you are unable to participate in the walk itself we invite you to join us and experience the storytelling and take in the visuals of walks from your fellow community members!

To Prepare:

  • Plan for a 30-minute walk, whatever walking means to you: leisurely and slow; in nature or in your city neighborhood.

  • In advance, participants are asked to think about a safe, socially distant walk you can take while listening to your headphones. (Or enjoy while sitting on your stoop, in your backyard, or lounging on your bed.)

  • Don’t forget your mask. Bring water, an extra layer, shades, and anything to help you lose yourself in the experience!
