Bring your camera and set out on this informal hike in search of snakes. Barbara Hobot (a non-expert snake-enthusiast) will lead you through the trails of the rare reserve, as you quietly snoop for chance spottings of slithery reptiles. Novice snake identification will be attempted using guidebooks. The photos of your findings may end up in the gallery space at Queen’s Square as a trace of this shared experience.
This public activation is part of the Of Containers and Firestarts exhibition.
