Mindful Map

Project title

Mindful Map

Description of initiative

A multi-arts project with young adults working to create a new well-being trail in Chopwell Wood. Consultation with members of the community took place through an open workshop in the wood. Following this, young adults took part in creative workshops with the artist, the writer and the animator to co-produce artwork for the trail. These workshops allowed re-connection with peers, and with the creative process itself. Artwork was spaced along the trail, while QR codes lead to digital animation, soundscape and spoken word that can be accessed while walking, running or riding. The trail was available for 12 months and visitors were invited to share their experiences of the trail via social media.
