This session will be led by Professor Dee Heddon at the University of Glasgow in collaboration with Clare Qualmann, University of East London & Dr. Morag Rose, University of Liverpool.
In this talk, researcher-artists Dee Heddon, Clare Qualmann and Morag Rose share findings from their AHRC funded project, “Walking Publics/Walking Arts”, a project which explores peoples experiences of walking during Covid19. Recent surveys have found that people across the UK walked more during COVID-19 and aspire to walk more after the pandemic and this research project seeks to explore how people experienced walking and how their experiences might have changed over the pandemic. Particularly, this session will focus on the creative approaches people and artists used to support their walking during these challenging times. The presentation will focus on work by women artists which is showcased in the project’s Digital Gallery, giving an insight into the diverse ways walking was and continues to be harnessed as creative and community resource.
