Walking as an artform is a meditative, therapeutic and poetic experience and it can also be a greatly social one. This walk is especially designed for Asylum seekers and Refugees.
We leads group art walk workshops in which the intent is to encourage others to examine their surroundings in a deeper way. To create with a group is an easy way in which participants can gain a meditative, therapeutic experience.
In this workshop we will create ‘seedbombs’ – balls of earth, clay and wildflower seeds- to be thrown into wastelands and areas that could benefit from potential life and beauty. Whether the seeds grow or not is unimportant, the creative act is the shared memories and experience we have formed together from encounters of the day in which participants reconnected with the natural environment and with a creative part of themselves.
