About Michael Angus: A Walker’s Diary
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
On the 27th October 2104 Michael Angus’s son, Christopher, then aged six, passed away. Subsequent to his passing, Michael became involved in fundraising for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, in support of the Royal Hospital for Children (specifically the cardiology unit where Christopher had attended as an outpatient.) Within two years, he completed six challenge treks, both nationally and internationally, including treks along the Great Wall of China, the Arctic, the Rockies and the Grand Canyon, and Hadrian’s Wall and the West Highland Way.
Throughout the treks and the associated training Michael kept both a diary and a photographic record of his travels. Combined, they present a reflective record of a father, whilst in a state of extreme grief, searching for purpose, meaning, and comprehension – filtered through observations on place, those landscapes traversed, both the natural and the man-made (notably the city of Glasgow).
The exhibition ‘WALKING BETWEEN WORLDS’ is a summary of the treks and training undertaken, mounted in parallel with the launch of the associated ‘A WALKERS DIARY: Volumes1-6’, and additionally, ‘Reflection’ books for each specific trek.
Michael Angus is author, educator, photographer, musician and architect. He has lived and worked his whole life in Glasgow. Subsequent to the passing of his son he has dedicated himself to broadening understanding of grief and loss, specifically child loss.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Michael Angus: A Walker’s Diary are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
