Walking the Menopause is a new body of work that is in development.
Over recent months, I have been leading one-to-one and small group menopause mapping-walks. I have now drafted a year-long programme of monthly walks starting in late August. These twelve mapping-walks will take place in different sites across the Lakeland Fells, the Yorkshire Dales, the Bowland Fells, along the River Lune (from source to sea) and in Lancashire.
Each will explore a different sort of menopause experience, including, menopause due to chemotherapy, endometriosis; Premature Ovarian Insufficiency or early menopause; surgical menopause (following a hysterectomy); menopause as experienced by someone who has transitioned gender.
You will soon be able to find more information and how to book a place on these walks here on this website.
Following the year of mapping-walks my aim (funding allowing) is to design and publish an artist/guidebook containing all twelve walks - each for a different site, theme, and type of menopause – that are specifically designed for people affected by the peri/menopause transition. Each menopause walk will evolve out of the monthly menopause walks and will be created in collaboration with a specific person or group.
