A Walk for Grief is a sensitive and reflective outdoor artwork that connects with the grief that many of us are experiencing at this time. Wearing headphones, you’ll be guided through the streets of Lancaster as you experience a gentle conversation with local women, from different backgrounds, on loss, grief and tenderness.
This immersive audio walk is part of arts project A Home For Grief and is made to support people who are grieving for others. Lancaster Arts commissioned A Home for Grief in 2018. We have continued to work closely with Fabiola and are delighted her work can now have a permanent presence in the streets of Lancaster through this new Sound Walk.
‘This is a beautiful experience, and very emotional. The grief I carry is for two miscarriages, so it is for life not lived, and a lost future. There is little ritual around these losses, so thank you for creating a space to hold it’. (audience member, A Home for Grief).
