Walking A Line – workshop and walk
Mar 3, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
A workshop and walk investigating neuro-divergent responses to the city landscape.
Aimed at adults who identify as neuro-divergent or have ASD: join BOM resident artist Kruse on a full day workshop exploring how art, mindfulness and data gathering might help you manage stress and anxiety when in the city.
Contributing to Kruse’ current research into the neuro-diverse experience of outdoor environments and travelling, the workshop aims to help you be more conscious of how different landscapes can affect you, and give you some practical tools to improve your mental well-being.
The day will begin with sharing ideas and practical tips for managing travel stress and will investigate what technologies are available to help us manage sensory input when travelling. Then, using lo-tech and digital devices* to gather data and make art, participants will be led on a mindful walk through the city before returning to BOM for a creative session responding to our experience of the city landscape.
*If you have a fitbit/garmin device or similar, or a smartphone please bring or wear them to the workshop.
Tea and coffee will be provided, please bring a packed lunch for yourself.
This workshop is free but places are limited so make sure you reserve a place on Eventbrite. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Kruse is a neuro-divergent artist making work that explores our relationship with the natural world. She podcasts on walking and drawing and is a member of WEBworks, a peer support and mentoring group of autistic and neuro-divergent creatives.
