I created walking prompt videos and facilitated online workshops for neurodivergent young people around Greater Manchester. I created the videos to invite young people to watch and try out different walking games that I explained and then gave an example of doing these. I also facilitated online group video call workshops where we discussed what walking meant to everyone, how they were walking during the pandemic restrictions and I guided them through making walking prompt tools for them to use outside. We also discussed walking art and specifically photography.
