Tornado Tracers marks the 13th anniversary, to the day, of the 2005 Birmingham tornado. This walk, led by Birmingham-based visual artist Carolyn Morton, charts the tornado’s route over three miles, identifying fragmented evidence, drawing from public records and personal anecdotes and exploring lasting impacts on the local community. Join us for rest, refreshments and conversation afterwards in a local public house. Please wear shoes suitable for urban walking. Presented in partnership with Still Walking Festival 

Carolyn Morton is a Birmingham based visual artist. Her practice focuses on transformation of materials and experience. Currently working in health and care settings, she’s exploring how making with our hands can parallel making sense of our lives
