Touring Walk around Mainway with its Residents

Activity: Other activity typesTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Festival/Exhibition


On the 6th of August 2020, we run the first event: a walk around Mainway to explore with 30 residents (in three toured walks: morning, afternoon, and evening) their personal experience of living in Mainway. Walking became the way to engage in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. This also gave us the opportunity to experience first-hand the outdoors and some indoors spaces that shape Mainway. The residents picked the stops and shared their personal stories with us. During each walk, residents stopped us to share their memories, point out social issues, and highlight things to change. Soon enough the residents let us know that the area suffers from social problems associated with drug and alcohol use/consumption.
