For A Walk With: Dementia in the City

For a Walk With... is a proposition to work with residents of care homes experiencing dementia and with care workers in the context of residential care. Read more

For a Walk With… uses the act of walking as a point of departure in order to address issues surrounding dementia, the politics of care, redevelopment, city and memory.

Initiated by Anton Kats in 2013, For a Walk With… is situated in Carlton Dene and Westmead Elderly Resource Centres in London and explores walking as a useful method to investigate and collaboratively respond to the site-specific problems in the everyday.  

For A Walk With: Dementia in the City was produced using the online archive and publishing tool edgwareroad.org, created by Bombay based media collective CAMP while in residence on the Edgware Road. It is part of the series, Studies on a Road, in which groups who took part in the Edgware Road Project from 2008 – 2016, have shared their studies of the area and reflections on the stakes of the project.

The Possible Studies imprint was developed through the Edgware Road Project. Initiated by Serpentine Galleries in 2008 the Edgware Road Project links local groups and international artists with people living and working in this area. The itinerant project base for the project is the Centre for Possible Studies, home to screenings, events, a publishing imprint and an ongoing project archive. From 2016 the Possible Studies imprint will be housed at Church Street Library on a specially commissioned shelf dedicated to the local area.
