WALK OF THE DANDELION
Taking hopeful steps forward
This September we are creating Walk of the Dandelion – an uplifting community engagement project designed to spread joy, connect families, friends and neighbours in both outdoor and indoor settings. The essence of the project will centre around a larger-than-life Puppet named Daniel, who holds a dandelion; a symbol of resilience and hope. Daniel will move through and visit a variety of community settings encouraging the making, receiving and passing on of handmade dandelions. The mission is to help stimulate mindfulness and encourage a focus on resilience.
Wherever Daniel walks, whenever you meet him, he will bring a moment of calm and shared hopefulness. After the past 18 months, we all need reminders that we are wonderful, resilient dandelions.

We are looking to collaborate with a practitioner who has experience in mental health contexts to work with Luke Brown Dance, testing workshop engagement for the Walk of the Dandelion project
“Daniel’s presence in the garden today was mesmerising. The way this kindly giant moves to embrace plants and people creates a wonderfully gentle, benign and calming atmosphere in tune with the needs of those around him. A totally magical experience.” Audience member at Horatio’s Garden, Salisbury Hospital
