Voices on the Railings

Voices on the Railings, Sedbergh  2003

On the eve of the second invasion of Iraq, 2003, Wallace Heim, Simon Pardoe and Linda Inman initiated a viral social practice action. We asked people to write, draw or in another way express their views about the proposed invasion on a card, and tie it to nearby street railings.

The action started in Ulverston, Coniston and Sedbergh in Cumbria, and spread as an instruction given online to Cambridge, London, Bristol, Oxford, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield, Manchester.
