Walking and creativity during Covid-19

Data tells us that more people walked more during COVID-19... why is this?

This Tea & Talk will explore the findings of the current research project, “Walking Publics/Walking Arts: walking, wellbeing and community”, led by Dee and funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council. Existing data tells us that more people walked more during Covid-19, but we are interested to understand more about who walked, why they walked, how they walked, and how they felt about walking. We are particularly interested in learning about creative activities people might have engaged or encountered while they were walking, and the impact of these on their experience. The project also investigates the work of artists who have used walking as material our output during the pandemic, to learn how their creative practice might support more people to walk well, during and beyond Covid-19. Partners include Ramblers Scotland, Paths for All and Living Streets.
