Way from home: Sharing a walk elsewhere

Misha Myers


The set of instructions from way from home(2002-2008) was created for refugee and asylum seeker participants across the UK to take a walk with someone. The instructions became a stimulus for a conversation between the walker and their partner. The approach of a civic cartography and creative practice of home-making proposed through way from home aimed to respond to the disparate needs of this population. The walks created situations that enabled the possibility for social interaction, creative agency, self-determination and self-representation, for the recognition and exchange of critical resources, capacities and contributions that refugees have to offer.
