Wandering in care homes

the role of artists in reimagining walking performed by people living with dementia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Walking by those living with dementia is often pathologically labelled ‘wandering’, an act lacking a clear purpose or destination. Walking in this context is not widely understood or valued, except as physical exercise. Drawing on walking performances by other artists and the author’s own arts-based research, during which she walked outdoors and in care homes with people living with dementia, this article explores the role that the performance and conceptualisation of walking by artists can play in challenging and reimagining walking undertaken by people living with dementia
