Take a Walk for Me project 2020-2021
Sligo County Council, through the Sligo Healthy Ireland Fund 2019-2021 commissioned four artists; Michele Feeney, Laura Gallagher, Sarah Sexton and Karen Webster to creatively capture Sligo walks to explore the relationship between people and their environment.
The idea around the Take a walk for Me project was to present an opportunity to support Older People’s wellbeing during the pandemic, to creatively connect with them during a time of social isolation.
The walks were captured through song, visual imagery, written word and soundscape recordings whilst also investigating the history of walking and its social meaning.
Podcast Two by artist Michele Feeney, captures the Tobernalt Holy Well walk.
