A Sensory Walk through Self-Perception

Event Details

18th April, 2015
Start point: Outside Husk Coffee, (opposite Limehouse DLR station) 649-651 Commercial Road, London E14 7LW

Part of
‘Walking the City’ TCCE Annual Walking Weekend 2015

Walk Guide: Dr. Fatima Maria Felisberti, Kingston University London
Duration: about 90 minutes

This moderate to fast walk is for people who wish to re-discover their own sensory “selves”. During this walk through natural and man-made environments (canals and parks) participants will be observing the world around and inside them. Guidance about sensory perception will be provided at different stages of the walk, with emphasis on locomotion and equilibrium, sound perception, visual perception, and attention.

Participants are required to bring along:

  • A piece of fruit (easy to eat – i.e. no accessories needed)
  • A piece of chocolate
  • We also recommend that participants may like to bring along a bottle of water

Participants should meet at the Husk Coffee (649-651 Commercial Road, E14 7LW) which is opposite Limehouse DLR station. The walk will end at Stratford (Olympic Park & Westfield Shopping Centre), with a stop along the way for comfort/refreshment (at the Pavilion Café, Victoria Park).

Important Note:
Please be advised that:

  • The canal footpath is narrow in places, so adequate footwear is essential.
  • The pace of the walk (moderate to fast) is not appropriate to participants with locomotion-related impairments or problems.
  • The walk requires a certain level of introspection and is therefore not suitable for children.
  • In the event of strong rain we will stop at the Pavilion café, near a convenient bus stop.

Any queries concerning suitability, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Booking is essential, so please BOOK NOW.
